Tropical Depression Omar Discussion Number  18
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL152020
1100 PM AST Fri Sep 04 2020

Another burst of convection has developed near and to the south of 
the center of Omar, so the system continues as a tropical 
depression despite ongoing strong shear.  The initial intensity is 
held at 30 kt based on recently received scatterometer data and a 
satellite intensity estimated from TAFB.  A combination of 
continued shear, dry air, and cooler waters should cause it to decay 
to a remnant low on Saturday and dissipate entirely by Saturday
night or Sunday.

Omar is starting its expected north-northeastward turn and the 
initial motion is now 070/4.  An approaching deep-layer trough 
should cause Omar to turn north-northeastward tonight and Saturday 
and then accelerate in that direction until it dissipates over the 
northern central Atlantic.
