Tropical Depression Fourteen

8 - 10 September 2003

11 September 2003

Tropical Depression Fourteen developed from a tropical wave that crossed the west coast of Africa on 6 September. The wave was associated with a broad surface circulation almost immediately, and by 8 September the system possessed enough organized convection to be considered a tropical depression about 250 n mi southeast of the southernmost Cape Verde Islands. The cyclone moved slowly to the west-southwest initially, but an upper-level low dropped down to the west of the depression and caused it to accelerate to the north-northwest on 9 September. Under southerly shear, the convection became separated from the circulation center and the circulation began to elongate. The depression dissipated on 10 September over the western Cape Verde Islands.
