The low/gale off the Northeast, just like the one off the Carolinas, is analyzed along a dying stationary front. It could be stricken from the TC criteria just by that. Of course when you look at it's deep convection, tight wind field, and tropical appearance that confuses the issue. If I was the NHC I'd call it a subtropical cyclone because it doesn't appear to meet all the tropical criteria but comes close... but NHC only uses that designation for nonfrontal entities historically. So, what you have there is by the conventional definitions, technically a run-of-the-mill frontal low. Nope, doesn't make complete sense, but that's how the game works. HF 1430z17july
