Remnants of Darby Discussion Number  31
NWS Central Pacific Hurricane Center Honolulu HI   EP052022
500 PM HST Sat Jul 16 2022

Scatterometer data from ASCAT-B at 2034 UTC showed 35-40 kt winds, 
and ASCAT-C at 1946 UTC showed several 35 kt barbs in the northern 
quadrant. However, the wind field from both datasets did not show a 
well-defined circulation center. This was also evident in the 
earlier CFOSAT scatterometer pass from 1722 UTC. With the lack of a 
low level circulation center, Darby has opened up into a trough and 
is no longer considered to be a tropical cyclone.

As a result, this is the last advisory issued by the Central Pacific 
Hurricane Center on Darby. Additional information on this system can 
be found in the High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather 
Service in Honolulu under AWIPS header HFOHSFNP and WMO header
