Fifteen - October 1-2,
A tropical depression formed in the eastern tropical Atlantic on
September 25th. The system moved
westward for several days with a slight increase in organization.
By October 1st, vertical wind shear
from the northwest began to impact the system as it moved north of the
Leeward Islands, leaving an
exposed circulation center which moved north-northwest towards an area
of enhanced cloudiness
associated with the subtropical jet stream. The remnant low
merged with this cloud pattern, and
moved north-northeast ahead of a frontal zone to the southeast of
Bermuda while continuing to weaken.
Below are the storm total rainfall
maps for the
depression, using data
provided by the National Climatic
Data Center in Asheville, North Carolina through their daily rainfall
totals. Its track was provided
by the National Hurricane
Center. Bands of showers and thunderstorms moved through Puerto
and the U.S. Virgin Islands while the tropical depression moved by to
the north of the region.
