Andrea, We Hardly Knew Ye

Subtropical Depression Andrea is dying a slow death. Dry, stable air has completely eroded away the convection associated with the storm (Figure 1). It appears that Andrea will be dissipated by tomorrow evening. The unfortunate thing is that since it didn't make landfall over Florida and Georgia, it will not be able to help drench the wildfires there. Hopefully a less dry air mass will move in over the next week or so.
