Tropical Storm Ignacio 2021
Satellite images, weather maps and tracks of Tropical Storm Ignacio 2021, July 30 - August 4. Max wind speed 40mph.
Ignacio consists of a swirl of low-level clouds and has been devoid of deep convection anywhere near its center since this morning (August 3). Therefore the system no longer qualifies as a tropical cyclone and is now a remnant low, or a post-tropical cyclone.
The low has been moving east-southeastward, or about 120/6 knots. A turn toward the southeast and south is expected on Wednesday while the system moves around the northern side of a low-level ridge.
Although the low will be moving over slightly warmer waters, strong easterly shear should prevent regeneration, and the system should dissipate in 24 hours or so.
This is the last advisory issued by the National Hurricane Center on Ignacio. For additional information on the remnant low please see High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service, under AWIPS header NFDHSFEPI, WMO header FZPN02 KWBC, and on the web at https://ocean.weather.gov/shtml/NFDHSFEPI.php
