Remnants of Three Winds: 30 kt
Pressure: 1015 mbar
Advisory 5 / 5:00 PM EDT Tue July 23, 2019

Tropical Depression Three has dissipated. An Air Force reconnaissance aircraft investigated the system this morning, finding a closed circulation on their first pass. However, upon intercepting the center for a second time and continuing into the northwest quadrant, the plane found winds out of the southwest or south. This indicates that Three degenerated to an open trough around the time of the 15z advisory. Recent visible satellite imagery continues to highlight convective activity concentrated around a vigorous mid-level circulation; however, low-level cloud motions do not suggest a new well-defined center has formed. An approaching cold front should continue to promote unfavorable surface flow across the western Atlantic, and it will also act to dramatically increase upper-level winds in the short term. Thus, this is the final advisory on Three and regeneration is not expected. The remnants of the system are now moving north-northeast and should continue in that general direction until they merge with the front in the vicinity of eastern North Carolina.
