Satellite images and tracking maps of Tropical Storm Omar 2020, August 30 - September 5. Max wind speed 40mph.

Omar continues to separate from a small lingering area of deep convection that is located more than 100 nautical miles south-southwest of the center. During the past couple of days, Omar has produced just enough convection to maintain its status of a tropical depression, but now it no longer meets the criteria of sufficently organized deep convection to be considered a tropical cyclone. Therefore, this is the last advisory on Omar issued by NHC. The initial intensity of the remnant low is 30 knots based on earlier ASCAT data that showed a region of 25-30 knot winds east of the center.

The remnant low is moving northward at 9 knots, a couple of hundred miles east of a cold front. The models suggest that the remnants of Omar should accelerate north-northeastward and merge with the front in about 24 hours, leading to extratropical transition. Dissipation is expected shortly thereafter.
