POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE KARINA DISCUSSION NUMBER  57
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL       EP112014
800 PM PDT TUE AUG 26 2014

Karina hasn`t been producing a significant mass of deep convection
for 12-18 hours, and the last few visible images of the day suggest
that the circulation is already becoming stretched due to its
proximity to Hurricane Marie.  Therefore, Karina is being declared
a remnant low, and this is the last advisory.  The official
forecast shows the low opening up into a trough by 36 hours, but
this could occur earlier.

Karina has turned southeastward, or 135/4 kt.  The remnant low will
turn eastward and east-northeastward during the next day as it moves
within the southern part of Marie`s circulation.

For additional information on the remnant low please see High
Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service...under
AWIPS header NFDHSFEPI and WMO header FZPN01 KWBC.
