Post-Tropical Cyclone DOUGLAS


ZCZC MIATCDEP4 ALL
TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM CCB

POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE DOUGLAS DISCUSSION NUMBER  28...CORRECTED
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP042014
800 AM PDT SAT JUL 05 2014

Corrected capitalization in last paragraph.

Douglas remains devoid of deep convection, and since the sea
surface temperatures are below 22 deg C, there is little likelihood
of the system making a comeback.  Therefore the system is being
declared a remnant low, and this is the last advisory.  The large
circulation has been slow to spin down, but gradual weakening is
anticipated with the cyclone expected to dissipate in about 72
hours.

The initial motion continues northwestward at about 8 kt.
Post-tropical cyclone Douglas should continue to be steered by the
flow on the south side of a low- to mid-level subtropical ridge.
The track guidance generally shows a turn toward the west-northwest
with a slight decrease in forward speed over the next couple of
days, and so does the official forecast.

For additional information on the remnant low of Douglas, please see
High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service, under
AWIPS header NFDHSFEPI and WMO header FZPN01 KWBC.
