Tropical Cyclone Report

Tropical Depression Sixteen-E

14 - 16 November 2002

Miles B. Lawrence
National Hurricane Center
4 December 2002

Tropical Depression Sixteen-E was first identified as a disturbance in the Intertropical Convergence Zone on November 11th, a few hundred nautical miles south of Acapulco, Mexico. Moving northwestward, the system developed a well-defined circulation center and became a tropical depression on the 14th, while located 470 n mi south of the southern tip of Baja California. This occurred even though there were strong westerlies aloft and about 25 kt of vertical shear over the system. Later on the 14th, the low-level center became exposed and the direction of motion became west-southwestward. There were occasional bursts of convection for the next day or so, but the depression became completely devoid of convection early on the 16th and degenerated into a remnant low about 630 n mi southwest of the southern tip of Baja California.
