MARIA looks as if she could be a TS for Iceland.

A tropical storm for Iceland is an oxymoron is there ever was one.

Survived Carol and Edna '54 in Maine. Guess this kind of dates me!

Maria may have winds in the tropical storm range, but will most definitely not be a tropical cyclone. The NHC 5 day graphical product is misleading because it makes no distinction between tropical and extratropical; the discussion and forecast products, however, do so. The differences in impacts between a 50kt extratropical storm and a 50kt tropical storm can be great, so it's not safe to simply assume that the distinction is not an important one.
