Satellite images and tracking maps of Category 1 Hurricane Pablo 2019, October 23 - 29. Max wind speed 80mph.
Cold waters of 16°C and increasing shear caused the deep convection near Pablo's center to dissipate early this morning (October 28), and the cyclone now consists of a swirl of low- to mid-level clouds and showers. This lack of deep convection has caused Pablo to now become post-tropical. A recent ASCAT pass showed an area of 30 to 35 knot winds northwest of the center of Pablo, and the initial intensity is set to 35 knots based on those data. In addition, the scatterometer data showed a much larger area of gale-force winds well to the north of, but not directly associated with Pablo.
The post-tropical cyclone will move slowly north to northwest over the next day or so, until it is absorbed by a much larger mid-latitude low to its west. The gales occurring north of the Pablo are expected to persist at least until it is absorbed.
