POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE OCTAVE DISCUSSION NUMBER 9  
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP182019  
200 PM PDT SAT OCT 19 2019  
 
DEEP CONVECTION HAS NOT RETURNED, NOW BEING ABSENT FOR AT LEAST 12  
HOURS. THE ENVIRONMENT AROUND OCTAVE IS DRY AND STABLE, AND IT IS  
UNLIKELY THAT SIGNIFICANT CONVECTION WILL COME BACK ANY TIME SOON.  
OCTAVE HAS THEREFORE BECOME A REMNANT LOW, AND ITS MAXIMUM WINDS ARE  
ESTIMATED TO BE 30 KT BASED ON RECENT SCATTEROMETER DATA. THE  
REMNANT LOW IS EXPECTED TO LINGER FOR AT LEAST THE NEXT 5 DAYS WITH  
ITS INTENSITY HOLDING STEADY OR DECREASING DUE TO MODERATE  
SOUTHEASTERLY SHEAR AND MID-LEVEL RELATIVE HUMIDITIES OF 30-40  
PERCENT.  
 
THE INITIAL MOTION REMAINS VERY SLOWLY EAST-NORTHEASTWARD, OR 070/2  
KT. THE REMNANT LOW IS TRAPPED IN A WEAK STEERING REGIME, AND IT  
IS EXPECTED TO MEANDER FOR THE NEXT 5 DAYS, ONLY MOVING A NET  
DISTANCE OF 50-100 N MI DURING THAT PERIOD. A SLIGHT WESTWARD  
ADJUSTMENT WAS MADE TO THIS LAST NHC OFFICIAL FORECAST TO ACCOUNT  
FOR THE LATEST MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS AIDS AND THE ECMWF, WHICH LIES  
ALONG THE WESTERN EDGE OF THE GUIDANCE ENVELOPE.
