Tropical Cyclone Report

Tropical Depression Seven-E

6 - 8 August 2002

Jack Beven
National Hurricane Center
20 November 2002

A tropical wave that moved westward from the coast of Africa on 23 July reached the eastern Pacific on the 29th. The wave continued westward with little development until 3 August, when convection started to increase. After additional slow organization, the system became a tropical depression near 0000 UTC 6 August about 785 n mi southwest of the southern tip of Baja California (Table 1). Development was then halted by southwesterly vertical shear that eventually destroyed the system. The cyclone moved northwestward for two days before it dissipated early on the 8th about 930 n mi west-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula.
