GOES-16 CONUS sector imagery, above, captured from CSPP Geosphere (link), over Tropical Depression Fred just north of eastern Cuba in the Atlantic Ocean, shows a ragged circulation with very little convection in the center (click here to download the mp4 above). Fred has been disrupted by its passage over the terrain of Hispaniola. Fred is embedded within southwesterly shear as shown below; that shear and the lack of convection near the center limits the speed with which Fred will be able to intensify.
