Meteorological History


A tropical wave moved off the coast of Africa on July 7. By July 10, evidence of a weak low-level circulation was seen on visible satellite imagery. By July 11, a small area of convection developed over the wave's circulation center. This, combined with wind observations from the U.S. Navy drifting buoy 41562, was the basis for upgrading the wave to a tropical depression while it was located well east of the Windward Islands at 1800 UTC July 11. It is possible that the wave became a tropical depression six to twelve hours earlier. After forming, the depression moved west-northwest, under the influence of a subtropical ridge to its north. Strong vertical wind shear disrupted the cloud pattern of the depression and by late on July 12, last-light visible images indicated that there was no longer a closed surface circulation associated with Tropical Depression Two. The depression dissipated about 600 miles east of the Windward Islands. The former depression produced showers across the Lesser Antilles on July 13 and July 14.
