According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC), Marco is now a Post-Tropical Cyclone. The NHC issued their final advisory on the storm, with maximum sustained winds at 30 mph, a central pressure of 1008 mb, and moving west at 10 mph. The final track keeps Marco skirting just south along the Louisiana Coast through today and continuing to weaken, likely dissipating.
