Tropical Depression Ten Discussion Number 5
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL102020
800 PM CVT Sat Aug 01 2020
The depression is barely a tropical cyclone. Most of the deep
convection from the burst earlier in the day has now dissipated and
the circulation appears to be losing definition. The initial
intensity is held at 25 kt based on the ASCAT data from several
hours ago. Since the cyclone is over cool waters and in a dry
environment, significant deep convection is unlikely to return.
Therefore, the depression will likely become a remnant low tonight
and open into a trough shortly thereafter.
The weak and shallow system has turned to the left recently, with
the latest initial motion estimated to be 305/11 kt. A general
west-northwest motion is expected until the system dissipates a
couple of hundred miles north of the northern-most Cabo Verde
Islands tonight or on Sunday.
