    DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
    ----------------------
    At 1100 PM AST (0300 UTC), the remnants of Wilfred were located near
    latitude 15.9 North, longitude 47.4 West. The remnants are moving
    toward the west near 17 mph (28 km/h), and this general motion
    should continue during the next day or two.

    Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher
    gusts. Winds should continue to decrease over the next couple of
    days.

    The estimated minimum central pressure is 1008 mb (29.77 inches).

    Northwesterly vertical wind shear has continued to take a toll on
    Wilfred. Recent infrared satellite imagery along with scatterometer
    data indicate that Wilfred's low-level circulation has become an
    open trough of low pressure. Therefore, Wilfred is no longer a
    tropical cyclone and this will be the last NHC advisory on this
    system. The remaining deep convection has a linear shape and
    appears to be the result of the system interacting with an
    upper-level trough to its northwest. The scatterometer data
    revealed peak winds of close to 30 kt to the north of the trough
    axis, and that is the basis for the initial intensity.

    The system is moving generally westward at about 15 kt. The trough
    should continue to move westward at a slightly slower forward
    speed until it weakens and dissipates within a few days.

    This is the last NHC advisory on Wilfred. Additional information
    on the remnants of 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
    ocean.weather.gov/shtml/NFDHSFAT1.php
