POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE KARINA DISCUSSION NUMBER 57
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP112014
800 PM PDT TUE AUG 26 2014
Karina hasn't been producing a significant mass of deep convection for 12-18 hours, and the last few visible images of the day suggest that the circulation is already becoming stretched due to its proximity to Hurricane Marie. Therefore, Karina is being declared a remnant low, and this is the last advisory. The official forecast shows the low opening up into a trough by 36 hours, but this could occur earlier.
Karina has turned southeastward, or 135/4 kt. The remnant low will turn eastward and east-northeastward during the next day as it moves within the southern part of Marie's circulation.
For additional information on the remnant low please see High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service...under AWIPS header NFDHSFEPI and WMO header FZPN01 KWBC.
