Remnants Of Dorian Discussion Number 15

500 Pm Ast Sat Jul 27 2013

Ascat Ambiguity Data From A Few Hours Ago Indicated That Dorian No Longer Had A Closed Surface Circulation.

Thus...The Tropical Cyclone Has Succumbed To The Harsh Environment And Has Degenerated Into A Tropical Wave. The Maximum Wind Speed Is Still About 35 Kt According To The Ascat Pass.

Regeneration Of This System Is Unlikely Due To Persistent Southwesterly Shear And Very Dry Air In The Mid-Levels Of The Atmosphere.

The Remnants Of Dorian Should Pass North Of The Leeward Islands And Puerto Rico...And Be In The Vicinity Of The Southeastern Bahamas In 2-3 Days.

An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter Plane Is Scheduled To
Investigate The Wave Tomorrow...If Necessary.
