Tropical Depression Six dissipated on July 21 as it approached the Lesser Antilles. However, the northern portion of the depression broke off and continued westward accompanied by deep convection, and moved across Hispaniola on July 23, and approached Florida on July 24. Radiosonde as well as satellite imagery indicated the presence of a mid to low-level circulation center existed with the wave. This circulation moved northward near the east coast of Florida, and by 1200 UTC on July 25, the wave became Tropical Depression Seven while located about 50 miles east of Daytona Beach, Florida. The depression was embedded in an environment of high surface pressures, and as it moved north-northwest over the cooler shelf waters near the Florida and Georgia coasts, it did not intensify beyond 25 to 30 knots. The depression had an unusually high 1016 mb pressure at its peak. It made landfall along the central Georgia coast about 35 miles south of Savannah at around 0600 UTC on July 26, and it dissipated over Georgia on July 27.
The depression caused no damage or deaths. It did, however, produce 2-3 inches of rain in parts of Georgia and South Carolina. Overall, however, impact was minimal.
