The "Dorian Distribution"

Among all the other strange and scary characteristics of Dorian, there is something very centered and normative about the distribution of its path.  Note that the Google Earth Pro jpg on the left probably suffers from plotting on a globe (e.g. curved surface). Also, the satellite/jet readings are regular intervals so obviously once the storm was in the gulf stream, Dorian moved much faster. I would feign to construct a pentagram over the path of Dorian's geometry, but that doesn't sound very statistical.  Click to enlarge the chart. R code and data below.

Some updated tables and Data for latest WM VRDB data

Below are updated cross tables from Whatcom County VRDB for data from 09/04/19 created with rdata.table. None of this presentation is annotated or user friendly and will require some knowledge of rdata.table query code and the WA VRDB. Wide screen laptop or desktop required.
