125kt, my henie.

That's a cat-5/super-typhoon to my discerning eye.

I don't post ...er...EVER! but this had to be documented here. Wow.
(From Weather underground)

Ioke will likely go through an eyewall replacement cycle within the
next 12 to 24 hours...resulting in short term strength fluctuations.
However...model guidance keeps Ioke at or near its current strength
through 120 hours. As an outlier...GFDL wants to strengthen Ioke to
168 kt at 96 hours. Since our previous forecast maximum sustained
winds at 96 an 120 hours were near the low end of the guidance
range...we bumped these up by 5 kt at each of these times this
round. Increasing SST and low shear along the forecast track
will...at the very least...greatly slow Ioke/S decay at higher
latitudes. If this pans out...Ioke could enter the record books for
longevity as a category 4 or greater storm.

Category 5 Hurricane Ioke is predicted to make a direct hit on Wake Island: http://www.nrlmry.navy.mil/tc_pages/tc06...atest.html

It'll be a hard record to break; Hurricane Allen (1980) was cat-4 or stronger for five and three-quarters consecutive days.
