Tropical Storm Georgette 2022
Satellite images, weather maps and tracks of Tropical Storm Georgette 2022, July 25 - August 5. Max wind speed 60mph.
Convection associated with Georgette dissipated this morning (August 3), and only a few isolated showers have development since that time. The small circulation now consists of a swirl of low- to mid-level clouds. Although small bursts of convection could still develop in associated with the system over the next day or so, it has not had appreciable organized deep convection in quite some time. Therefore, it no longer meets the definition of a tropical cyclone, and this will be the final NHC advisory on Georgette. The initial intensity has been reduced to 30 mph (25 knots). Weakening should continue over the next 24 to 36 hours as the systems moves over sea surface temperatures below 26°C and into a dry mid-level environment. The low is expected to become an open trough in 36 to 48 hours as indicated by the global model guidance.
The cyclone is now moving northward at about 10 mph (7 knots). A low-level ridge is forecast to build to the north of the system, and this should cause the low to turn westward on Thursday. A general westward motion should then continue until dissipate occurs. The new NHC track prediction is a little north of the previous advisory to be in better agreement with the latest dynamical model guidance envelope.
