Five-day track on Hurricane Maria puts it near ICELAND!
The five-day track from the National Hurricane Center of Tropical Storm Maria, which is presently in the central Atlantic Ocean and no threat to North America, puts the storm -- still as a tropical system -- near Iceland by Tuesday morning, as shown below.

It won't technically be a tropical storm when it hits Iceland. It will still likely have tropical-storm-force winds, but inside of 12 hours, it should lose its tropical characteristics.
Still, that is a Just Damn storm.
Could the water that far North still be warm enough to support a hurricane?
