Hurricane Frances was a long-track Cape Verde hurricane that reached a peak intensity of 145mph, Category Four, north of Puerto Rico. Moderate wind shear began to affect the storm and it crossed the Southeast and Central Bahamas as a Category Three with winds of 115-130mph. Frances continued to weaken to a Category Two, with winds of 105mph, as it approached the Northwest Bahamas. Steering currents weakend on September 4th and Frances responded by turning to the west and slowing to a crawl. Over the following 48 hours, Frances made a very slow landfall over the Florida east coast, coming onshore near the south end of Hutchinson Island as a category Two, with peak winds of 105-110mph. Minimum central pressure at landfall in Florida was 960mb (28.35in). I was accompanied on this chase by storm chasers Jose Garcia and Karl Hoarau. The video also includes some behind-the-scenes footage from the National Hurricane Center, with several forecasters, including my good friends Eric Blake and Max Mayfield (the center's director at that time).
