"Irma's nearly 24-hour traversal of the north coast of Cuba appears
to have affected the hurricane's structure and intensity.  An
earlier NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft and a more recent Air Force
reconnaissance flight both measured maximum flight-level winds near
105 kt and surface winds near 95 kt.  The planes have reported
a double eyewall structure, which has also been observed in WSR-88D
Doppler radar data from Miami and Key West.  Irma's intensity has
been conservatively lowered to 105 kt, and I'd rather wait to lower
the winds further until we've seen the full data set from the Air
Force mission."

They've lowered her intensity to a low-end 3 and think that she's weaker.
