POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE GEORGETTE DISCUSSION NUMBER 24
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP082016
800 AM PDT WED JUL 27 2016

Georgette has been devoid of organized deep convection since about 0100 UTC. The cyclone is currently located over 24.5 deg C SSTs and moving toward colder water. In addition, Georgette has entrained a large field of stable stratocumulus clouds, which now completely encircle the system. Therefore, Georgette is now declared a remnant low, and this is the last advisory issued by the National Hurricane Center on this system. The initial intensity of 30 kt is based on a 0534Z ASCAT-A scatterometer pass that contained one 34-kt wind vector, and an assumed gradual spin-down of the circulation since then.

The initial motion estimate is 300/08 kt. A west-northwestward to westward motion at about the same forward speed is expected during the next couple of days while the low continues to weaken. Dissipation is forecast to occur by 72 hours.

Even though Georgette is no longer a tropical cyclone, recent altimeter data indicated that an area of seas higher than 12 ft still existed near the system. For additional information, please see High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service under AWIPS header NFDHSFEPI and WMO header FZPN02 KWBC.
