Tropical Depression Vicky Summary

Vicky is feeling the affects of very strong upper-level winds
associated with the outflow of Hurricane Teddy. These winds have
caused the remaining convection to be stripped well away from the
center, and recent ASCAT data indicates that Vicky has weakened to
a tropical depression. The ASCAT data support a peak wind speed
of 30 kt. Vertical wind shear of 40-50 kt is forecast to continue
plaguing Vicky, and the cyclone should continue to weaken and
become a remnant low later today. The global models indicate that
the circulation will open up into a trough within 36 to 48 hours,
and the official forecast calls for dissipation within that time
period.

Now that Vicky has become a vertically shallow cyclone, it has
turned south of due west and is moving 260/12 kt. Vicky or its
remnants should turn west-southwestward later today as it is
steered by the low-level northeasterly flow. The latest NHC track
forecast is in best agreement with the HFIP corrected consensus
model.
