4324 day major hurricane drought to end as Harvey reaches Cat 3, making landfall soon

Watts Up With That?

From NHC:

Data from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 125 mph (205 km/h) with higher gusts. Harvey is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Some additional strengthening is possible before Harvey makes landfall overnight. Weakening is then expected over the weekend while the center moves inland over Texas.

Harvey is expected to strengthen further, according to NHC, and that storm making landfall as a Category 3 will end the “major hurricane drought” we have been experiencing in the USA.

It is now 4324 days since Category 3 Hurricane Wilma made landfall in Florida on October 24th, 2005.
