NWS CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER HONOLULU HI   CP092015
500 AM HST FRI JAN 01 2016
 
DEEP CONVECTION FLARED UP DURING THE PAST SEVERAL HOURS NEAR THE
LOCATION WHERE TROPICAL DEPRESSION NINE-C APPEARED TO HAVE BEEN
EARLIER TONIGHT. HOWEVER...AN 0855Z ASCAT PASS OVER THIS ELONGATED
AREA OF DEEP CONVECTION REVEALED A ROUGHLY EAST-NORTHEAST TO
WEST-SOUTHWEST ORIENTED SURFACE TROUGH WITH NO WELL DEFINED
LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. THERE WAS A NEARLY 150 MILE WIDE BAND
OF LIGHT WEST WINDS DUE SOUTH OF THE SURFACE TROUGH...WHILE A BELT
OF SLIGHTLY STRONGER EAST TO NORTHEAST WINDS WAS NORTH OF THE
TROUGH. THE STRONGEST WINDS...AROUND 25 KT...WERE LOCATED NEARLY 120
NM NORTH OF THE TROUGH AXIS. IN ADDITION TO THIS ASCAT PASS...NONE
OF THE THREE SATELLITE FIX AGENCIES...JTWC...SAB OR PHFO...WAS ABLE
TO PROVIDE A CENTER FIX OR CLASSIFY THE SYSTEM AS OF 1200Z THIS
MORNING. AS A RESULT OF THE ASCAT DATA AND THE LACK OF
CLASSIFICATIONS FROM THESE AGENCIES...NINE-C HAS DISSIPATED AND THIS
WILL BE THE FINAL ADVISORY ISSUED FOR THIS SYSTEM...UNLESS
REGENERATION OCCURS.
