Tropical Weather

Remnant Low Richard…

Tropical Depression Richard no longer has sufficient deep convection and has been downgraded to a Remnant Low. Although Richard is over water, dissipation if the system is forecast due to strong southwesterly shear along with dry air. The low is on a NNW track and is forecast to continue that track along the southwest periphery of a low-level subtropical anticyclone. Regeneration is highly unlikely.
