POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE KRISTY DISCUSSION NUMBER 19  
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP132018  
800 AM PDT SAT AUG 11 2018  
 
COLD WATERS AND WIND SHEAR HAVE TAKEN A TOLL ON KRISTY. THE CLOUD  
PATTERN HAS DEGENERATED CONSIDERABLY, AND IT NOW CONSISTS OF A  
TIGHT SWIRL OF LOW CLOUDS WITH SOME PATCHES OF MID- TO HIGH-LEVEL  
CLOUDS. IT IS ESTIMATED THAT THE WINDS HAVE DECREASED TO 30 KT WITH  
SOME ISOLATED SPOTS OF HIGHER GUSTS. THE CYCLONE WILL CONTINUE OVER  
COLD WATERS, AND ALTHOUGH REGENERATION IS NOT ANTICIPATED, SOME  
INTERMITTENT SHOWERS COULD STILL DEVELOP BEFORE DISSIPATION OCCURS  
IN A COUPLE OF DAYS.  
 
SINCE THE POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE IS A SHALLOW SYSTEM, IT IS NOW BEING  
STEERED TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST OR 300 DEGREES AT 4 KT BY THE  
LOW-LEVEL TRADE WINDS. THIS GENERAL MOTION WITH A GRADUAL TURN TO  
THE WEST IS ANTICIPATED DURING THE NEXT DAY OR SO.  
 
THIS IS THE LAST ADVISORY ISSUED BY NHC ON THIS SYSTEM.
