Based on the conflicting evidence, the decision is to revert this track back to that originally proposed by Fernandez-Partagas, with no extension into the Bahamas. The temperature data for New Bedford, Massachuestts suggests that the cyclone became extratropical or was absorbed by a second low prior reaching New England, which needs to be taken into account in the metadata and any related climatological work.
The committee notes that it previous asked for all of the observations for this system. It still needs the observations from north of the Houston-Galveston area (such as Gilmer, Texas) to determine if the proposed revised track is correct. It should be noted that the committee chairman examined the Signal Corp weather maps available online and found they totally lacked data in this area.
At this time, the committee cannot approve the proposed changes due to the incomplete data. This item is still open.
