Movement: Northwest [295°] near 14 mph [22 kph].

The Depression is encountering stronger wind shear, has a mass of dry air to the West, and is over cooler water. Its chances of development are marginal, and it poses no threat to any land. I’m going to stop updating on it unless it decides to do something interesting.
