Post-Tropical Cyclone Selma Discussion Number   7
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       EP202017
400 PM CDT Sat Oct 28 2017

Visible satellite imagery, radar data, and surface observations
indicate that Selma has degenerated to a poorly-defined remnant low
near the border of El Salvador and Honduras, and this will be the
last advisory.  Weakening will continue, and the cyclone is expected
to dissipate over the Sierra Madre Mountains tonight.

Although Selma has weakened to remnant low pressure area, heavy
rainfall of 2 to 5 inches remains the primary threat and could
cause flash floods, especially in areas of higher terrain of El
Salvador, Guatemala, and southern Honduras.
