REMNANTS OF PHILIPPE DISCUSSION NUMBER 9  
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL182017  
500 PM EDT SUN OCT 29 2017  
 
DURING THE PAST FEW HOURS, STRONG VERTICAL WIND SHEAR IN EXCESS OF  
50 KT, PLUS MERGER WITH A COLD FRONT, HAS TAKEN ITS TOLL ON  
PHILIPPE'S PREVIOUSLY WELL-DEFINED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION. THE SYSTEM  
HAS BECOME ELONGATED NORTH-TO-SOUTH WITHIN THE FRONTAL ZONE, AND A  
NEW LOW-LEVEL CENTER MAY HAVE DEVELOPED ABOUT 150 NMI FARTHER NORTH  
ALONG THE FRONTAL BOUNDARY NEAR NOAA BUOY 41002. NOW THAT PHILIPPE  
HAS LOST ANY TROPICAL OR SUBTROPICAL CHARACTERISTICS DUE TO MERGER  
WITH A SYNOPTIC-SCALE COLD FRONT, THE SYSTEM IS DECLARED TO HAVE  
DISSIPATED.  
 
MUCH OF THE LATENT HEAT AND DEEP CONVECTION ASSOCIATED WITH  
PHILIPPE'S REMNANTS WILL LIKELY BE DRAWN INTO A LARGER EXTRATROPICAL  
LOW PRESSURE THAT IS DEVELOPING NEAR THE OUTER BANKS OF NORTH  
CAROLINA, AIDING IN THAT INTENSIFICATION PROCESS. ALTHOUGH THE  
DEVELOPING POWERFUL LOW NEAR THE OUTER BANKS IS NOT DIRECTLY  
ASSOCIATED WITH PHILIPPE, INTERESTS ALONG THE MID-ATLANTIC AND  
SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND COASTS SHOULD CLOSELY MONITOR FORECAST PRODUCTS  
ISSUED BY THE NOAA WEATHER PREDICTION CENTER, NOAA OCEAN PREDICTION  
CENTER, AND YOUR LOCAL NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORECAST OFFICE.
