Tropical Depression Nine developed from a tropical wave with a well-defined circulation that moved off the coast of Africa on September 26. At 1200 UTC September 27, the wave was upgraded to Tropical Depression Nine while located 150 miles southeast of the Cape Verde Islands. For the next 36 hours, the depression moved north and then northwest at a foward speed of less than 10 knots. During this period, the cyclone lost its associated deep convection and the low-level circulation center became exposed. Late on September 28, the depression moved close to Sal in the Cape Verde Islands, at which point the depression was declared dissipated.
