Tropical Storm Marie Winding Down

Tropical Storm Marie Winding Down

Marie has continued to produce a small area of convection south andeast of the center, but deep convection shoulddissipate shortly now that Marie is moving over sea surface temperatures around 22°C, andMarie should become post-tropical by tonight. Gradual weakening isexpected as it will take the largecirculation some time to spin down even without convection. Large southerly swells affecting much of the west coast of the BajaCalifornia peninsula and the coast of southern California willgradually subside through Friday. These swells could still producelife-threatening surf and rip currents, as well as minor coastalflooding around the time of high tide. This image was taken by GOES West at 1930Z on August 28, 2014.
