DORIAN REMAINS A TROPICAL WAVE

Posted: Updated:

I'm still tracking the remnants of former Tropical Storm Dorian.

An Air Force reconnaissance aircraft has finished investigating the system and was unable to find a closed circulation. The recon mission also reported that the system is poorly organized with the lowest surface pressure well-removed from the deep convection. Therefore, I will call the Dorian remnant a tropical wave.

The axis of the tropical wave extends northeastward a few hundred miles from Puerto Rico along 24N63W to 17N66W. The wave is moving toward the west-northwest at 15-20 mph. Upper level winds are not favorable for the system to regenerate into a tropical cyclone as the Dorian remnant will face 20-30 knots of shear over the next two days. None of our reliable computer models forecast re-development during the next several days.

Elsewhere in the Tropics, tropical cyclone formation is not expected through Wednesday.
