Post-Tropical Cyclone Kenneth Discussion Number 22
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL EP132017
200 PM PDT Wed Aug 23 2017

Kenneth's organized deep convection has been gone for over 12 hours now. Satellite images also suggest it is losing its tropical character, with some possible frontal structures developing near and northeast of the center. Thus, it no longer meets the requirements of a tropical cyclone, and this is the final advisory. The wind speed is held at 35 kt owing to the tight low-level circulation seen on visible imagery. The post-tropical cyclone should gradually spin down over cold waters and generally move north-northwestward with some decrease in forward speed over the next couple of days. Later in the forecast period, when the cyclone is likely to be very weak and shallow, a turn toward the northwest is expected following the low-level flow. The official track forecast is very close to the previous one.
