Victor weakens into depression, dissipate by Tuesday


Sept. 30 (UPI) — Tropical Storm Victor is still holding on but has weakened to a tropical depression.

In the 11 a.m. AST update, the National Hurricane Center said the center of what’s now Tropical Depression Victor was located over the Atlantic Ocean about 1,145 miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands with maximum sustained winds of 35 mph. The depression is moving toward the northwest at 13 mph.


Victor will continue this general forward motion over the next few days, becoming a remnant low by late Monday and dissipate by Tuesday.

No coastal watches or warnings are in effect.

Victor is the 20th named storm of the season, leaving the National Hurricane Center with one last name, Wanda, on its primary list.

Earlier predictions had Victor possibly intensifying into a hurricane.

Once Wanda forms, forecasters will utilize a supplemental list prepared by the World Meteorologist Organization to name systems. The list will replace the Greek alphabet, which was used to name storms amid two hyperactive seasons in the past: 2020 and 2005.
