Post-Tropical Cyclone JOVA


Post-Tropical Cyclone Jova Discussion Number   9
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       EP122017
800 PM PDT Sun Aug 13 2017

Jova lacks sufficient deep convection to be classified as a
tropical cyclone, so the system is being designated as a remnant
low.  Although the low may produce sporadic bursts of deep
convection over the next day or two, the dry and stable environment
should prevent the system from coming back.  Based on the ECMWF
model prediction, the remnant low should dissipate after 72 hours,
if not sooner.

The low is moving westward or 270/12 kt.  A mainly easterly
low-level environmental flow should move the system on a westward to
west-southwestward track until dissipation.  The official track
forecast is similar to the previous one.

This is the last advisory on Jova.  For additional information on
the remnant low please see High Seas Forecasts issued by the
National Weather Service, under AWIPS header NFDHSFEPI, WMO header
FZPN02 KWBC, and on the web at
