Subtropical Depression Andrea: 

As expected, Andrea is likely to be a short-lived event. The storm’s cloud pattern has continued to degrade, and Andrea is now essentially devoid of deep convection. In fact, at first glance, the upper-level low to the southwest of the center appears to be the most dominant feature. Based on the lack of convection and a buoy observation not far to the north of Andrea, the system is being downgraded to a subtropical depression. Since the storm is expected to remain under the influence of the upper low and in an environment of dry mid-level air for the next day or so, Andrea is likely to degenerate into a remnant low pressure area in a day or less.

The system has moved a little more to the north than previously estimated and the initial motion is north at 8 mph.  Upper-level westerlies should cause the storm to turn eastward in 12-24 hours until dissipation.
