Post-Tropical Cyclone Martin Discussion Number  10
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL162022
900 PM GMT Thu Nov 03 2022

ASCAT-C data that was not available until after the issuance of the 
last advisory, but was valid at 1317 UTC, showed that Martin likely 
became frontal earlier today and the system no longer has a 
well-defined circulation. In addition, both TAFB and SAB evaluated 
the system as extratropical at 1800 UTC. Therefore, Martin is now 
classified as post-tropical and this will be the last NHC advisory.

While Martin does not currently appear to have a well-defined 
center, the powerful post-tropical cyclone is expected to redevelop 
a well-defined center as it occludes over the next 12 to 24 h. 
Martin is moving at a remarkable clip of 50 kt, but should begin to 
slow down soon and turn north-northwestward during the next few 
hours. After that, the cyclone is forecast to move relatively slowly 
on Friday before picking up speed toward the east-southeast or east 
through the early weekend. Martin's maximum winds are still forecast 
to slowly decrease over the next few days, however the combination 
of Martin and other non-tropical low pressure systems are still 
expected to produce hazardous wind and seas over a very wide area of 
the North Atlantic for the next couple of days.
