Post-Tropical Cyclone Arthur Discussion Number  12
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL012020
1100 AM AST Tue May 19 2020

Arthur has transitioned into an extratropical low this morning with
a warm front extending northeastward from the circulation, any deep 
convection only along the front, and lots of more stable cumulus 
clouds near the center.  Thus this is the last advisory.  The 
initial intensity remains 50 kt based on continuity and model 

The main adjustments to the previous forecast include a quicker
dissipation of the post-tropical cyclone, somewhat linked to the
models showing a faster weakening after 12 hours, and a
continuation of the westward shift in the track forecast in a day
or two.  These changes are consistent with the latest model
consensus for track and similar to a GFS/ECMWF blend for intensity.

Dangerous coastal surf conditions and rip currents are expected to
continue along portions of the mid-Atlantic and southeast U.S.
coasts during the next couple of days.  See products from your local
National Weather Service Forecast Office for more details.
