Tropical Depression 10 was a tropical depression that did not develop into a tropical storm, in the record-breaking 2005 Atlantic hurricane season, forming from a tropical wave that exited the coast of Africa in mid August. There is no damage associated with the depression, and no deaths were reported, either.

Meteorological History

In the second week of August, a tropical wave exited the coast of Africa and moved west. On August 13, Tropical Depression Ten developed 1100 statue miles east of the Lesser Antilles. Conditions around the depression were not favorable for tropical cyclone development, with high levels of wind shear literally ripping the depression apart. The next day, advisories on the depression were discontinued when the system failed to show any deep convection. The remnants of TD10 continued drifting to the northwest before degenerating to a tropical wave north of the Leeward Islands. The mid-level circulation of the depression eventually merged with another system in the "complex genesis" of what would become Hurricane Katrina.
