The transition of the hurricane boundary layer near and at the landfall of Hurricane Lili was analyzed with the help of arrays of meteorological surface stations and a portable Doppler radar. An increased roughness values were observed which was an indicative of shorter, steeper and younger waves in the shallow bay. The slowing of the mean wing was observed to be as a result of surface change from the water to land. A best-fit curve analysis showed an exponential decrease of mean wind with increased distance from the initial interface.
