Post-Tropical Cyclone Omar Forecast Discussion

Post-Tropical Cyclone Omar Discussion Number  21
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL152020
500 PM AST Sat Sep 05 2020

Omar continues to separate from a small lingering area of deep
convection that is located more than 100 n mi south-southwest of
the center.  During the past couple of days, Omar has produced just
enough convection to maintain its status of a tropical depression,
but now it no longer meets the criteria of sufficently organized
deep convection to be considered a tropical cyclone.  Therefore,
this is the last advisory on Omar issued by NHC.  The initial
intensity of the remnant low is 30 kt based on earlier ASCAT data
that showed a region of 25-30 kt winds east of the center.

The remnant low is moving northward at 9 kt, a couple of hundred
miles east of a cold front.  The models suggest that the remnants
of Omar should accelerate north-northeastward and merge with the
front in about 24 hours, leading to extratropical transition.
Dissipation is expected shortly thereafter.
