New Tropical Depression Forms Over Eastern Pacific

New Tropical Depression Forms Over Eastern Pacific”

The storm was centered Tuesday afternoon almost 400 miles south-southeast of Halifax, Nova Scotia, and moving to the east-northeast at 13 mph.

After briefly strengthing to tropical storm strength Tuesday, Dolly's outlook rapidly deteriorated, becoming a tropical depression Wednesday morning and post-tropical by the late morning.

"If the system stays over this warm water long enough and dry air doesn't wrap into its center, it could organize into a subtropical depression or storm later Monday or Monday night and continue into Tuesday".

"A turn toward the northeast with an increase in forward speed is expected tonight and on Wednesday", the NHC said.

The storm's maximum sustained winds were near 45 miles per hour (75 kph) but weakening is expected during the next day or two as Dolly moves over colder waters, the Hurricane Center said.

Not only did Dolly become a rare June D-named storm, only the third in recorded history, but it also will go down in the history books as the second-earliest fourth-named storm in the basin.

Forecasters say the storm's remnants are on a track that will take it near Atlantic Canada - though no major impacts are expected.

From here the storm will move northeast and quickly run into waters too cold to support further development. The weak tropical storm made landfall near Tamiahua in eastern Mexico on June 20, 2016.

Tropical Depression Dolly spins off of the coast, southeast of Atlantic Canada Wednesday morning, June 24th.

Dolly is the fourth tropical storm of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season.

The system being monitored for tropical development was seen spinning east of the mid-Atlantic on June 22, 2020.
