Remnants Of Victor Discussion Number  21

Victor is no longer a tropical cyclone. A timely 1048 UTC ASCAT-A 
pass confirms that Victor does not have a closed surface 
circulation. Since the system has degenerated into a trough of low 
pressure over the central Atlantic, this will be the final NHC 
advisory on Victor. An area of 20 to 22-kt scatterometer winds is 
noted well to the northeast of the trough axis, but these winds 
should diminish through tonight as the trough dampens and the 
remnants move west-northwestward. Hostile environmental conditions, 
including strong southerly shear and very dry mid-level air, will 
inhibit any redevelopment of this system.
