The Depression Has Been Devoid Of Deep Convection For Most Of The Day...And It Is Difficult To Ascertain If A Closed Circulation Still Exists.

On This Basis...The Depression Is Now Considered A Remnant Low.

This System Is Forecast To Move Toward The Northeast About 15 To 20 Knots Embedded Within The Flow Ahead Of An Upper Trough.

The Low Could Still Develop Intermittent Convection Before
Dissipation In A Day Or So.
