POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE FELICIA DISCUSSION NUMBER   8
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP072015
800 PM PDT FRI JUL 24 2015

Felicia has been devoid of deep convection for nearly 10 hours, and
since the cyclone is over sea surface temperatures of around 23 deg
C, there is little likelihood of the system making comeback.
On this basis, Felicia is being declared a remnant low with 25-kt
winds, and this is the last advisory. Continued weakening of the
cyclone is expected while it remains over cool waters and ingests
drier and more stable air.  Dissipation is predicted in 2 to
3 days, following the global models.

The remnant low is moving northwestward at about 11 kt.  The
shallow system is expected to turn west-northwestward on Saturday
and westward on Sunday within the low-level trade wind flow.  The
official track forecast is close to a consensus of the GFS and ECMWF
models.

Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service, under AWIPS
