Maria aiming North

Maria is still headed near Bermuda, they remain under a Tropical storm warning. Bermuda may actually get winds of around 60 mph with plenty of rain.

Today, NHC was able to get a better fix on Maria's center by using some buoys that are in her path. While it shows that the system is still a tropical storm, most of the strong winds remain on the eastern half of Maria.

The image below shows the wind field of Maria in orange. If you extend this out over the next 24-48 hours, Bermuda may get a taste of this tropical storm.

Models do not hint at any further intensification. Hopefully this will only be a worry for the shipping lanes.
