Tropical Depression Omar Discussion Number  15

500 AM AST Fri Sep 04 2020

Although it is situated over fairly warm waters of a little 
over 27 deg C, Omar has been producing very little deep convection 
overnight while it continues to be affected by strong northerly 
shear.  Some dry air is also being entrained into the circulation.  
The current intensity of 25 kt is based on continuity from earlier 
scatterometer measurements.  If the lack of convection continues, 
Omar will be declared a remnant low pressure system later today.  In 
any event, the cyclone should become absorbed by a frontal trough 
within a couple of days.

After turning east-southeastward, Omar is now headed east at a 
rather slow pace, or 090/6 kt.  The system should turn toward the 
northeast and accelerate ahead of a large mid-level trough 
within 36-48 hours.  The official forecast is somewhat faster than 
the previous one but slower than the latest track model consensus
