Post-Tropical Cyclone Oscar Discussion Number 20
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL162018
500 PM AST Wed Oct 31 2018

Satellite imagery and scatterometer data indicate that Oscar has
become a hurricane-force extratropical low, as the central
convection has all but dissipated and frontal-band-type cloud
features have become better defined. The scatterometer data show
hurricane-force winds about 70 n mi south of the center, and that
the overall wind field has expanded considerably since the previous
overpass. The cyclone is expected to maintain an intensity of 60-65
kt for the next 48 h, then gradually weaken as the baroclinic energy
wanes, with dissipation occurring between 96-120 h over the far
northeastern Atlantic.

The initial motion is now 030/30 kt. Oscar is now well embedded in
the mid-latitude westerlies, and for the next 3-4 days it should
move generally northeastward with a gradual decrease in forward
speed.

Much of the current forecast, especially the intensity and the
size, is based on input from the NOAA Ocean Prediction Center.

This is the last advisory on Oscar from the National Hurricane
Center. Additional information on this system can be found in High
Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service, under AWIPS
header NFDHSFAT1, WMO header FZNT01 KWBC, and available on the Web
at https://ocean.weather.gov/shtml/NFDHSFAT1.shtml.
