Clear Indications of Rotation with System 93L

I expect that before morning has ended tomorrow (November 5) 93L will be declared a tropical depression.  By definition, a tropical disturbance upgrades to a tropical depression once closed rotation at the surface is confirmed.

The first shows windfields from a Quiksat (satellite) pass.  The second depicts the movement of ocean waves, which for the most part, is a function of wind.

With regard to this notion/expectation that a tropical depression status will be designated, I am providing two graphics which I consider to be supportive.  Left clicks will enlarge the graphics.
