Meteorological History


A tropical wave exited the coast of Africa on July 14. The wave moved westward across the Atlantic Ocean and on July 19 while located about 900 miles east of the Leeward Islands, the wave developed enough convection around a closed surface circulation to be deemed Tropical Depression Six by the National Hurricane Center. The depression moved to the west for two straight days, and as it was approaching the Leeward Islands on July 21, data from a reconnaissance aircraft indicated that the depression no longer had a closed surface circulation, indicating that it degenerated into an open tropical wave. The wave continued westward across the Carribean Sea for a few more days before dissipating completely. The northern portion of the wave split and moved northwest and eventually became Tropical Depression Seven.


The depression caused no damage or casualities, and it brought nothing other than showers to the Leeward Islands, despite being predicted to become a hurricane for quite awhile.
