ASCAT AND OSCAT DATA SHOW THAT ALVIN LACKS A CLOSED CIRCULATION IN
ITS WESTERN SEMICIRCLE.  THE LATEST SATELLITE IMAGES ALSO INDICATE
THAT THE SYSTEM HAS BECOME ELONGATED WITHOUT A WELL-DEFINED CENTER

LONGER A TROPICAL CYCLONE...AND THIS IS THE LAST ADVISORY. 
ALTHOUGH THE REMNANTS WILL BE OVER WARM WATER FOR THE NEXT COUPLE
OF DAYS...THE GLOBAL MODELS GENERALLY SHOW PERSISTENT WESTERLY
SHEAR...WHICH WILL LIKELY INHIBIT ANY REGENERATION ATTEMPTS.

FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS SYSTEM PLEASE SEE HIGH 
SEAS FORECASTS ISSUED BY THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE...UNDER 
AWIPS HEADER NFDHSFEPI AND WMO HEADER FZPN01 KWBC.
