HTTrack has been around for ages, runs on almost any system from the CLI or GUI and specialises in website archival for offline use. Scripting this or running occasionally and rewriting URLs as needed in the output can give you a static version of your WordPress site.

Wget is a more generic tool for requesting remote URLs. It is very scriptable and allows mirroring a complete website by recursively following links it discovers.

This is a little side project I started, which allows simple static site conversion with URL rewriting for any publicly accessible website. Feedback encouraged.

Anything that gives your a full copy of your website, often branded as “website archiver” or “offline website downloader” may do the job for you. You’ll probably still need to do some URL rewriting to get things ready for deployment, but with a little DNS fiddling, just one of these tools may be enough.
