Hello All,
Well here we go. As of 5am this mourning we have TD just south of the Cape Verde Islands. Though this is many miles away from the U.S. its still something to watch finally. As for where its going and strength it should continue moving west and it is forcasted to become a Tropical Storm this afternoon. I will take a few hours to compile information on this new system and return later today with an update and forcast.
