A tropical wave, which had exited the coast of Africa earlier in the month, developed into a tropical depression on August 26 while located about 790 kilometers east of Barbados. On August 28, reconnaissance aircraft was unable to find a closed circulation within the wave, and consequently, the cyclone is deemed to have dissipated on this day. The weakening was apparently caused by strong vertical wind shear removing the low-level center from the deep convection.
