Tropical Depression 06E 2020

Last Modified:

Satellite images and tracking maps of Tropical Depression 06E 2020, July 9 - 14. Max wind speed 35mph.

A very recent ASCAT-B overpass indicated that the circulation of the tropical depression is no longer closed with light and variable winds evident on its south side. Therefore, the system no longer meets the criteria of a tropical cyclone, and this is the last advisory issued by NHC. The initial intensity remains 25 knots based on the ASCAT data, which showed an area of 20-25 knot winds on the system's north side. The remnants of the depression are currently producing a very limited amount of shower activity, but the associated convection could pulse up and down for another day until the trough moves over cooler waters.

The trough is moving westward at about 15 knots and it should continue in that direction for another couple of days until it completely dissipates.
