Remnants Of Bret Discussion Number  22
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL032023
500 PM EDT Sat Jun 24 2023

Satellite images, surface observations, and ASCAT data from a few 
hours ago indicate that Bret no longer has a well-defined low-level 
center.  The structure of the system more resembles an open wave or 
trough with a couple of embedded vorticity maximums.  Therefore, the 
system does not meet the criteria needed to be considered a tropical 
cyclone, and this is last advisory issued by NHC.  

The remnants of Bret are still producing 35-kt winds in areas of 
showers and thunderstorms just north of the northeastern portion of 
Colombia.  These winds are expected to decay as the system continues 
to move quickly westward.

This is the last advisory on Bret.  However, additional and future 
information on this system can be found in High Seas Forecasts 
issued by the National Weather Service, under AWIPS header 
NFDHSFAT1, WMO header FZNT01 KWBC, and online at
