Sunday Morning Maria Discussion

Steady intensification is continuing. Areal coverage of convection continues to slowly expand, mostly in the E portion of the circulation.

The CDO itself has been pulsing convection through the dmax period but it tends to wax and wane still. This could be a symptom of her still trying to moisten the environment. Mid-level RH levels were moderate and may be the only limiting factor in the short-term.

Maria should be a hurricane no later than 5pm today. Once she can sustain deeper central convection and fill in the W side of the circulation centre a bit more, she will be off to major status. Aside from RH values, there's really nothing environmental to inhibit her until land interaction with the Greater Antilles.
