late Thu evening update:
HURRICANE CENTER RED-FACED AND TAIL BETWEEN LEGS AS IT UPGRADES GASTON BACK TO TROPICAL STORM

I just found this out on the Weather Channel, and the NHC is probably so embarrassed about this they did not even post a discussion. It is embarrassing for them because they decided to write off the storm yesterday... when people throughout the forecast industry were screaming that this was still a tropical storm... and probably came onshore as a hurricane.

Just goes to show you... do not try to "count out" Mother Nature.

Take a peek at an interesting local radar, you can clearly see an eye and rotating bands.
