Post-Tropical Cyclone Kyle Discussion Number   7
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL122020
500 AM AST Sun Aug 16 2020

Shortwave infrared satellite imagery and earlier ASCAT data 
indicate that Kyle's circulation has become very elongated, and the 
center has become ill defined.  Model analyses and satellite imagery 
also suggest that the low is now attached to a prominent 
warm/stationary front to its east and a weaker trailing cold front 
to its southwest.  Therefore, Kyle has become an extratropical low, 
and its maximum winds are estimated to be 35 kt based on the earlier 
ASCAT data.  Global models indicate that Kyle's winds should 
continue to decrease over the next couple of days, with the system 
dissipating or becoming absorbed by another area of low pressure in 
about 48 hours.

The initial motion is eastward, or 080/17 kt.  Since Kyle is 
embedded in zonal mid-latitude flow, this general heading and speed 
are expected to continue during the next day or two until the 
cyclone dissipates.
