This is surprisingly a decent set of recon obs. It's far better than the entire mission last night. Definitely still a 50kt storm and they could even increase it a bit.

That's one hell of a vortex then because there were finding similar obs well removed from it to the w.
It may be interesting to watch the evolution if convection persists.

If the center is forming more to the NW how would that affect the track?

Just based off of vis satellite, Beta looks to be trying to wrap up some. The curvature of the coast may be helping a bit. Will be interesting to see the progress throughout today.

Anyone know where I can find visible satellite of beta?

You can change the band and the frames loop above the images.

Beta definitely has some dry air to deal with (no secret there) but that moist air down in the BoC is interesting. Anyone think that blob could end up helping feed Beta some additional moisture?

Yeah it can easily be deceiving.

And hopefully nobody misinterprets my posts thinking I'm saying it rapidly intensifying. I just wasn't expecting it to have so many legitimate obs this strong this morning after the recon run last night.

50-60 mph sustained winds with higher gusts is no joke. Especially if the duration is for a lengthy time which not only will cause severe beach erosion but it has the potential for a larger range of power loss.

Looks like the upper ridge over the SE is building in over Louisiana. Interesting to see the convection building NW of the center with expansion of clouds to the West. Visible zoomed 0.5 km sure shows a wrapped up circulation with Beta. I see the first squalls are nearing Galveston Bay.
