Tropical Depression Nine - August 21-24, 2003

A strong tropical wave moved off the west coast of Africa on August 14th.  The system moved westward across the
tropical Atlantic for several days, showing development just before reaching the Lesser Antilles.  Becoming better
organized, the system became a tropical depression on the afternoon of the 21st in the eastern Caribbean sea.  Soon
afterwards, strong upper level winds from the southwest caused weakening, and its surface circulation dissipated
late on the 22nd.  Its convective pattern continued moving north and northwest over Puerto Rico and Hispaniola
over the next couple of days.  The graphics below show the storm total rainfall for Tropical Depression Nine.
