Post-Tropical Cyclone Kristy Discussion Number 19
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL EP132018
800 AM PDT Sat Aug 11 2018

Cold waters and wind shear have taken a toll on Kristy. The cloud pattern has degenerated considerably, and it now consists of a tight swirl of low clouds with some patches of mid- to high-level clouds. It is estimated that the winds have decreased to 30 kt with some isolated spots of higher gusts. The cyclone will continue over cold waters, and although regeneration is not anticipated, some intermittent showers could still develop before dissipation occurs in a couple of days.

Since the post-tropical cyclone is a shallow system, it is now being steered toward the west-northwest or 300 degrees at 4 kt by the low-level trade winds. This general motion with a gradual turn to the west is anticipated during the next day or so.

This is the last advisory issued by NHC on this system.
