Post-Tropical Cyclone Selma is dissipating…as it moves inland over El Salvador and Guatemala – Last Advisory

Here’s a satellite view, with the looping version…along with what the computer models are showing

Maximum sustained winds are 30 mph

According to the NHC:

Tropical Storm Selma  Discussion Number 02
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
400 PM CDT Sat Oct 28 2017

Visible satellite imagery, radar data, and surface observations indicate that Selma has degenerated to a poorly-defined remnant low near the border of El Salvador and Honduras, and this will be the last advisory. Weakening will continue, and the cyclone is expected to dissipate over the Sierra Madre Mountains tonight.

Although Selma has weakened to remnant low pressure area, heavy rainfall of 2 to 5 inches remains the primary threat and could cause flash floods, especially in areas of higher terrain of El Salvador, Guatemala, and southern Honduras.
