Tropical Storm Frank dissipates far off California coast as Georgette hangs on as tropical depression
While the Eastern Pacific remains active with Georgette, the Atlantic Basin is quiet and hasn't had a trackable feature since early July
After causing a social media uproar in California, Tropical Storm Frank has officially dissipated hundreds of miles offshore of San Diego in the Eastern Pacific, but the basin remains active with Georgette still hanging on as a tropical depression over the open waters.
But Georgette won't be around much longer either.
As of Wednesday morning, the tropical depression had maximum sustained winds of 35 mph and was located more than 1,300 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula.

The tropical depression is expected to make a northward turn on Wednesday, according to the National Hurricane Center. On Thursday, Georgette will turn toward the west and increase its forward speed.
However, gradual weakening is predicted, and Georgette is forecast to become a remnant low in the next day or so.
