Emily weakens, no longer a Tropical Storm

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Tropical Storm Emily is no more. The storm was ripped apart over the Island of Hispaniola and is now just a trough of low pressure.

The storm weakened Thursday afternoon as it traveled past Haiti and the mountains of the Isle of Hispaniola. Emily is now only a remenant low and no more advisories will be issued unless it regenerates.

The storm no longer has the wind speeds or organization necessary to maintain Tropical Storm status. All advisories have been discontinued at this time.

The remnants of former Tropical Storm Emily are producing a large area of cloudiness and thunderstorms extending from eastern Cuba northeastward across the southeastern Bahamas. The system remains disorganized, but upper-level winds are expected to become a little more favorable for development on Saturday.

The system has a 60 percent chance of regenerating into a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves toward the Northwest and northward at 15 mph..
