Post-Tropical Cyclone Barbara Discussion Number  25
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       EP022019
500 AM HST Sat Jul 06 2019

The combination of cold sea surface temperatures and strong
westerly shear has taken a toll on Barbara. The system has
degenerated significantly, and it now consists of a vigorous swirl
of low clouds devoid of any deep convection. Consequently, it no
longer classifies as a tropical cyclone, and this is the last
advisory. The winds are estimated to be near 35 kt with higher
gusts. Additional weakening is indicated, and the system should
dissipate in a couple of days while it moves toward the west steered
by the low-level trade winds.
