Track of TD 14L

In the late morning of September 25, Lisa (14L)lost its hurricane status and weakened to a tropical storm. Following its northward forecast track as predicted, Lisa continued to slowly weaken further over the far eastern Atlantic near Cape Verde throughout the rest of the day.

On September 26, Lisa weakened to a tropical depression and became a remnant low several hours later, sooner than expected. At 5:00 PM AST (21:00 UTC), the center of the remnant low of Lisa was located near latitude 26.1 north, longitude 29.4 west.

The low is moving toward the north-northwest near 7 mph (11 km/hr), and this general motion is expected to continue for the next couple of days.

Maximum sustained winds are near 30 mph (45 km/hr) with higher gusts. Some weakening is expected during the next couple of days. Estimated minimum central pressure is 1008 mb (29.77 inches).
