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 
Salvador.

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 
on Iota.


Key Messages:

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.
