Wednesday Night Update

Lisa inland
From NHC earlier:
Lisa has made landfall along the coast of Belize, near the mouth of the Sibun River, about 10 miles southwest of Belize City around 420 PM CDT
(2120 UTC). The maximum sustained winds are estimated to be 85 mph (140 km/h), and the minimum central pressure is estimated to be 990.

IMO Lisa was not this strong at landfall. Radar did show an eyewall, but winds of 85 mph sustained should have produced gusts to at least 100 mph. It was more likely a 70-75 mph sustained wind at landfall. In addition, the surface pressure of 990 mb is quite high for a hurricane of 85 mph.

Heavy rainfall, tropical storm force winds will continue tonight, especially near the coast of Belize.

The Weather Situation
SUMMARY OF 700 PM CDT...0000 UTC...INFORMATION
----------------------------------------------
LOCATION...17.5N 88.5W
ABOUT 20 MI...30 KM W OF BELIZE CITY
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...75 MPH...120 KM/H
PRESENT MOVEMENT...W OR 280 DEGREES AT 12 MPH...19 KM/H
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...990 MB...29.24 INCHES

Tropicast: Visible Satellite Late Wednesday Afternoon

Tropical Weather Forecast:
Lisa will weaken rapidly tonight with tropical storm force winds subsiding, especially in inland areas. Heavy rainfall and flash flooding remain a concern. It will cross over northern Guatemala and into the Bay of Campeche during the next 36 hours.
