CHANGES WITH THIS ADVISORY

  • None.

SUMMARY OF WATCHES AND WARNINGS IN EFFECT

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

Interests along the Carolina and Mid-Atlantic coasts should monitor the progress of Maria. Tropical storm or hurricane watches may be needed for a portion of the coast later today.

At 800am CDT (1200 UTC), the center of Hurricane Maria was located near latitude 27.9 North, longitude 72.7 West. Maria is moving toward the north near 9 mph (15 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue through Monday.

On the forecast track, the core of Maria will be moving well east of the United States southeast coast during the next two days.

Reports from a NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that maximum sustained winds are now near 110 mph (175 km/h) with higher gusts. Maria is a category 2 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Some fluctuations in intensity are likely during the next day or so.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 240 miles (390 km). During the past several hours, NOAA buoy 41047 located to the east of the center reported sustained winds of 68 mph (109 km/h) and a wind gust of 85 mph (137 km/h).
