DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 800 PM MST (0300 UTC), the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Xavier
was located near latitude 19.1 North, longitude 107.5 West.  The
post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the west-northwest near 6 mph
(9 km/h).  The system is expected to turn toward the west or west-
southwest at about the same forward speed during the next couple of
days.

Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher gusts.
Some weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours and Xavier is
expected to become a remnant low by Tuesday evening.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1004 mb (29.65 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF:  Swells generated by Xavier will continue to affect portions
of the coast of southwestern Mexico this evening and should subside
on Tuesday morning.  These swells are likely to cause life-
threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please consult
products from your local weather office.


NEXT ADVISORY
-------------
This is the last public advisory issued by the National Hurricane
Center on this system.

Post-Tropical Cyclone Xavier Discussion Number  14
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       EP252018
800 PM MST Mon Nov 05 2018

Deep convection has now remained absent in Xavier for about twelve
hours.  Given the hostile southwesterly vertical shear, dry
mid-levels, and only lukewarm waters to be encountered by the system
during the next couple of days, it is unlikely that persistent deep
convection will make a comeback.  Therefore, Xavier is now
considered to be a post-tropical cyclone and this is the last
advisory to be issued by the National Hurricane Center.

Despite the lack of thunderstorms, Xavier is showing a well-
pronounced, though small, low-level circulation in the last few
visible images. Peak winds in the system are around 40 kt, assuming
that some spindown has occurred since the 45 kt observed from the
ASCAT scatterometer several hours ago.  Continued gradual weakening
is very likely and Xavier is anticipated to become a remnant low by
Tuesday night and dissipate in about three days.

The post-tropical cyclone is moving west-northwestward at around
5 kt.  The system should turn toward the west or west-southwest
during the next couple of days until dissipation, under the
influence of a lower tropospheric ridge north of Xavier.
