Re: Transition to extratropical?

agree with above post... but appeared from what recon found along Al. coast was strong tropical force winds...
agree that 43F dew point at 5kft in the center is pretty much a sign the core is no longer in my view a "tropical system"... but looking at buoys to the south.. there is upper 60F dew points coming north... yes there at the surface... but a 43F dew point in the center is umm.. Whoa! Ida... this seems to be some kind of record?

PS: lastest vortex is 999mb
dew point 46F

based on data.. all warm windy wx is north of center.. between coast and center.... there still is some warm air trying to come up from the south
