Tropical Cyclone Report
Tropical Depression Four-E
6 - 7 July, 2000

12 July 2000

Short-lived Tropical Depression Four-E formed from the same tropical wave that spawned Tropical Depression Two in the Atlantic basin. Satellite images show the wave crossing Central America between 30 June and 1 July and then moving westward across the eastern Pacific. The thunderstorm activity associated with the wave became somewhat concentrated with some cyclonic turning on early 6 July when the system was located about 1200 miles southwest of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Advisories were initiated at 2100 UTC on that day, but the depression weakened rapidly and it was dissipating 18 to 24 hours later. The track is presented in Table 1 and Fig. 1.
