Pablo was a Cape Verde-type tropical storm that did not affect land.


a. Synoptic History

Pablo originated from a tropical wave which moved from Africa to the Atlantic Ocean on October 3rd. The wave acquired a low- level circulation and became a tropical depression at 1800 UTC on the 4th, while it moved westward at 17 to 23 mph and was centered about 600 nautical miles southwest of the Cape Verde Islands.

Pablo became a tropical storm on the 5th. Its movement was rather fast toward the west-northwest and then west across the tropical Atlantic for the next three days under the influence of deep easterlies. It is estimated that the storm's sustained winds reached their maximum value of 58 mph on the 6th and then stayed near 52 mph until the 8th, when the storm encountered very strong vertical shear and quickly dissipated while centered about 135 nautical miles east-southeast of Barbados.

b. Meteorological Statistics

Only one reconnaissance mission investigated Pablo on the morning of the 8th, and was unable to locate a well-defined low- level wind center.

c. Casualty and Damage Statistics

There are no deaths or damages attributed to Pablo.
