Maria is currently a weak tropical storm. She does not have a defined circulation, which I am anticipating a RECON aircraft will confirm tonight. She has a patch of clouds in her center (figure 1), which you can see is exposed from the main convection to the north of Maria (figure 2) with center roughly drawn in.
