Post-Tropical Cyclone Kristy Discussion Number 19

Kristy no longer meets the definition of a tropical cyclone. While some convection continues to exist to the east of the low-level circulation, it is not even organized enough to warrant Dvorak classifications from SAB or TAFB. Therefore, Kristy is being designated as a post-tropical cyclone with winds of 30kt. It is moving toward the west-northwest, but a turn toward the west is expected in the next day as it becomes wholly embedded in low-level trade wind flow. By 72 hours, the low should have dissipated.
