TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM
TROPICAL DEPRESSION PETER DISCUSSION NUMBER   8
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
10 PM EST WED DEC 10 2003
 
QUIKSCAT AMBIGUITY VECTORS FROM THE MOST RECENT PASS AT 21Z INDICATE
THAT PETER HAS...AT BEST...ONLY A VERY SMALL CLOSED SURFACE
CIRCULATION AND IS IN THE PROCESS OF OPENING UP INTO A TROUGH. 
OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS...PETER HAS BEEN ABLE TO GENERATE ONLY
INTERMITTENT AND LIMITED DEEP CONVECTION...NOT REALLY ENOUGH TO
QUALIFY THE SYSTEM AS A TROPICAL CYCLONE.  THEREFORE... THIS WILL
BE THE LAST ADVISORY ON PETER...AND WITH ANY LUCK...THE LAST
ADVISORY FOR THE 2003 HURRICANE SEASON.

THE QUIKSCAT PASS INDICATED THAT MAXIMUM WINDS ARE STILL AROUND 30
KT TO THE EAST OF THE DISSIPATING CENTER.  THE INITIAL MOTION IS
025/12.  THE REMNANTS OF PETER SHOULD CONTINUE ON A NORTH-NORTHEAST
TO NORTHEASTWARD TRACK AND ACCELERATE UNTIL THEY ARE ABSORBED INTO
THE APPROACHING FRONTAL ZONE WITHIN THE NEXT 12 HOURS OR SO. 
FUTURE INFORMATION ON THE REMNANTS OF PETER CAN BE FOUND IN HIGH
SEAS FORECASTS ISSUED BY THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE UNDER AWIPS
HEADER NFDHSFAT1 AND WMO HEADER FZNT01 KWBC.
