Remnants Of Iota Discussion Number 21
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL312020
900 AM CST Wed Nov 18 2020
Although the system still has broad mid-level rotation, synoptic
observations from Central America show that the surface circulation
of Iota has dissipated. Its remnants are located somewhere near El
Although the remnants of Iota are likely to move into the eastern
North Pacific during the next day or so, the global models do not
show regeneration of the system over that basin.
Iota is still expected to produce very serious flash flooding and
mudslides, with potentially catastrophic effects, over
portions of Central America.
This is the last advisory issued by the National Hurricane Center
1. Life-threatening flash flooding and river flooding is expected
through Thursday across portions of Central America due to heavy
rainfall from the remnants of Iota. Flooding and mudslides across
portions of Honduras, Nicaragua and Guatemala could be exacerbated
by saturated soils in place, resulting in significant to
potentially catastrophic impacts.
