WEST. WHILE POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE BILL STILL HAS SOME CYCLONIC
CIRCULATION...IT HAS SIGNIFICANTLY WEAKENED AS ONLY A RAGGED AREA
OF LOW PRESSURE REMAINS ACROSS NORTHEASTERN MARYLAND. RADAR
IMAGERY SHOWS CONVECTION TO THE SOUTH OF THE LOW BUT IT IS MUCH
LESS ORGANIZED THAN IT HAS PREVIOUSLY BEEN DURING THE PAST FEW
DAYS.  SURFACE OBSERVATIONS SHOW VERY WEAK WIND FIELDS IN PLACE
WITH 5 TO 10 KNOTS ACCOMPANIED BY SLIGHTLY HIGHER GUSTS. OUTER

PENNSYLVANIA...NEW JERSEY...AND INTO SOUTHEASTERN NEW YORK AND
LOWER COASTAL NEW ENGLAND. THE REMNANTS OF BILL ARE EXPECTED TO
CONTINUE MOVING EAST-NORTHEASTWARD INTO THE FAR EASTERN PART OF
THE UPPER MID-ATLANTIC AND LOWER NEW ENGLAND EARLY THIS MORNING
AND WILL TRACK ACROSS THE NORTHEAST COASTLINE LATER IN THE
MORNING. THE REMNANTS OF BILL COULD BRIEFLY RESTRENGTHEN AS IT
BECOMES EXTRATROPICAL OVER THE NORTHERN MID-ATLANTIC AND SOUTHERN
NEW ENGLAND COAST.

MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS ARE NEAR 25 MPH...40 KM/H...WITH HIGHER
GUSTS.

MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE IS 1005 MB...29.68 INCHES.

FROM PREVIOUS HEAVY RAINFALL.
