Tropical Depression 13W, located approximately 390 nm south of Yokosuka, Japan, has tracked eastward at 09 knots over the past six hours. Maximum significant wave height is 6 feet.
Animated multispectral imagery shows the low level circulation has remained fully exposed and totally void of any deep convection.
The system is stripped of vertical structure and is now in a weak steering pattern north of the subtropical ridge in cool waters (below 26 celsius). It is expected to dissipate as a significant tropical cyclone over water in the next 12 hours.
