SUMMARY
DISCUSSION

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.


None.


At 300 PM GMT (1500 UTC), the center of PostTropical Cyclone Theta was located near latitude 31.5 North, longitude 18.2 West. The posttropical cyclone is moving toward the north near 2 mph (4 km/h) and a faster north or northnortheast motion is forecast for a day or two until the low dissipates. Maximum sustained winds are near 30 mph (45 km/h) with higher gusts. The low should gradually decay and dissipate by Tuesday. The estimated minimum central pressure is 1010 mb (29.83 inches).


has run out of theta-e. The cyclone has been without significant deep convection for many hours now and has been gradually spinning down today. It no longer meets the qualifications of a tropical cyclone, so this is the last advisory. The initial wind speed is set to 25 kt per the latest scatterometer pass. The low is meandering this morning. It is expected to be picked up to the north-northeast by the next trough over the northeastern Atlantic, along with an increase in forward speed. The remnants of Theta should gradually lose strength due to strong shear, very dry air and little instability before dissipating in a day or two. Additional information on this system can be found in High Seas Forecasts issued by the UK Met Office under WMO header FQNT21 EGRR and on the web at metoffice.gov.uk/weather/specialist-forecasts/coast-and-sea/high- seas-forecast/.
