Meteorological History

The cyclone originated from a tropical wave that had previously exited the coast of Africa sometime earlier in the month. On August 16, as the wave was located 965 kilometers east of the Lesser Antilles, it developed into a tropical depression. On August 17, as the depression was approaching the northern Leeward Islands, an area previously impacted by Hurricane Dean, and later Hurricane Hugo, it was destroyed by an upper-level low that produced shearing and removed the low-level center from the deep convection.


Coinciding with the formation of the depression, the National Hurricane Center issued a Tropical Storm Watch for portions of the northern Leeward Islands. As the cyclone dissipated, this watch was discontinued.
