Last Update On Karen As She Degenerates Into A Surface Trough

| September 27, 2019 @ 4:52 pm

SUMMARY OF 400 PM CDT INFORMATION
LOCATION…29.3N 58.5W
ABOUT 425 MI…685 KM ESE OF BERMUDA
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS…35 MPH…55 KM/H
PRESENT MOVEMENT…NE OR 45 DEGREES AT 6 MPH…9 KM/H
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE…1007 MB…29.74 INCHES

Scatterometer data from a few hours ago indicated that Karen’s circulation has opened up into a surface trough of low pressure. In addition, the associated convection has continued to lose organization. Therefore, the system is no longer a tropical cyclone, and this will be the final advisory. Maximum winds, based on the ASCAT pass, remain near 30 kt.

Although an area of low pressure may persist for a few more days, the circulation should remain poorly organized, and the remnants are not expected to produce any significant convection. The surface trough is expected to move little during the next 24 hours, but it should then begin moving westward by 48 hours as high pressure builds over the western Atlantic.
