is used to describe the outflow. This altitude is mostly consistent with findings from aircraft observations ( Komaromi and Doyle 2017 ). However, such a definition is not sufficient to quantitatively relate the full outflow process with TC intensification. We need a simple and meaningful diagnostic to not only represent the direction and strength of the asymmetric outflow, but also to infer the relation between the outflow, environmental flow, and TC intensity. A central hypothesis of our study

) analyzed in this study and its corresponding time window. Observations collected between 1715 and 1915 UTC 22 October as Patricia was in the midst of its record-breaking rapid intensification phase ( Fig. 1a ) are denoted herein as the RI IOP. Microwave imagery shows deep convection in the eyewall wrapping around a compact center of circulation as Patricia had just achieved category 4 status ( Fig. 2a ). Both the P-3 and WB-57 executed figure-4 patterns with the P-3 flying the 700-hPa flight level
