None


At 500 PM AST (2100 UTC), the center of PostTropical Cyclone Omar was located near latitude 38.4 North, longitude 56.9 West. The posttropical cyclone is moving toward the north near 10 mph (17 km/h). A faster northnortheastward or northeastward motion is expected during the next day or two.

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. The remnant low is expected to merge with a cold front on Sunday and dissipate Sunday night.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1011 mb (29.86 inches).


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.
