POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE FLOSSIE DISCUSSION NUMBER 23
NWS CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER HONOLULU HI EP062013
500 AM HST TUE JUL 30 2013

FLOSSIE HAS WEAKENED TO A POST-TROPICAL REMNANT LOW. SATELLITE AND
RADAR DATA AND SURFACE OBSERVATIONS SHOW NEITHER A WELL-DEFINED
CIRCULATION CENTER NOR ANY WELL-ORGANIZED CONVECTION. IT IS NOT
CERTAIN THAT THERE IS EVEN STILL A LOW PRESSURE CENTER AT ALL.
OUTFLOW BOUNDARIES ASSOCIATED WITH A BURST OF CONVECTION DURING THE
EVENING MAY HAVE DISRUPTED THE CIRCULATION. AN OSCAT PASS AT 1045
UTC SUGGESTS THE SYSTEM HAS OPENED UP INTO A TROUGH. THE REMNANT
LOW OR TROUGH WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE WEST AT 10 TO 15 KT AND WEAKEN.
