Tropical Storm Maria Discussion Number 58
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL152017
1100 AM AST Sat Sep 30 2017

Maria is on its way to becoming extratropical as cold air continues
to wrap around the circulation. The cloud pattern has become
elongated, while microwave data show that the low- and mid-level
centers are rapidly becoming detached. However, Maria is still able
to produce a small but concentrated area of deep convection just to
the east of the center, and the maximum winds are still estimated at
50-kt. Maria should transition to an extratropical low by later
today or tonight, and then it should be absorbed by a frontal zone
in a couple of days.

The track continues to be straightforward. Maria is embedded in the
fast mid-latitude westerlies, and this flow should steer the cyclone
toward the east-northeast with increasing forward speed until
dissipation or abortion by a cold front.
