Tropical Depression Six Discussion Number   6
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL062023
1100 PM AST Sun Aug 20 2023

Proxy-vis satellite imagery indicates that the center of the 
depression remains exposed with convection displaced to the east. 
The system is also starting to be impacted by the outer rainbands 
of Tropical Storm Franklin. Based on a blend of objective and
subjective satellite estimates, the initial intensity remains at 
30 kt for this system.

The depression remains in a strong deep-layer sheared environment, 
while also starting to be impacted by outer bands of Franklin. 
Models and simulated satellite data show the system becoming a 
remnant low overnight and dissipated in 24 hours.

The depression is moving west-northwestward, and this
general motion is expected to continue until dissipation occurs.
The track forecast is very similar to the previous forecast, and 
lies near the consensus aids.
