Satellite images and tracking maps of Category 1 Hurricane Frank 2022, July 23 - August 4. Max wind speed 90mph.
Frank has failed to produce organized deep convection since last night, and the system has been reduced to a well-defined low-level cloud swirl over the open waters of the eastern Pacific Ocean. Since Frank no longer satisfies the criteria of a tropical cyclone, this will be the final NHC advisory on now post-tropical Frank.
The cyclone is expected to gradually turn northward during the next couple of days as it moves around the western periphery of a distant low-level ridge. Although Frank is believed to be still producing some 34-knot winds in its northeastern quadrant, weakening is expected through midweek as the cyclone continues to spin down over cool sea surface temperatures. The system is forecast to open into a trough and dissipate by early Friday.
