Remnants of Gaston - September 6-7,
An area of disturbed weather moved offshore the western African
coast towards the end of August. The system
developed into a tropical depression, and then a tropical storm, on
September 1st. An environment of subsidence
and dry air hindered additional development, and Gaston slowly weakened
back into a remnant low on the 4th. Over
succeeding days, the system would flare thunderstorm activity but would
not regain tropical cyclone status. The low
moved into the northeast Caribbean south of Puerto Rico before
dissipating as it approached Hispaniola on the 7th.
