Tropical Depression 06E formed yesterday and has since been upgraded to Tropical Storm Enrique, with winds of 35kts. The storm is located in the western half of the basin, way out to sea, at about 125 degrees west. The storm consists of limited central convection but strong, curved banding features wrapping into the circulation from the east and south. Enrique is moving towards the northwest currently, towards cooler waters and higher shear. Therefore, Enrique only has about a day or so to intensify, and NHC expect a peak of 50kts.

Convectively challenged Enrique has developed much deeper convection over the LLCC today. Winds have increased to 45kts aswell. Time is running out for Enrique to intensify further however, as the storm is approaching colder water.

Enrique is weakening. Winds are down to 35kts. The convection is on the wane, leaving the LLCC partially exposed. Dry air is filtering into Enrique again, and waters are now cool beneath the system. These two factors should soon cause the demise of Enrique.

Enrique has been downgraded to a tropical depression as it has lost most of it's convection due to cool waters beneath the system, and dry, stable air. Unless convection returns soon, Enrique will be declared a remnant low. This is expected to happen very soon.
