The Fourth Tropical Depression of the Season Forms near the Cape Verde Islands
10:56 PM EDT - 18 August 1999
Advisories should be showing up shortly for our newest Tropical Depression of the day, TD#4.
This storm will trek westward and likely quickly form into the second Tropical Storm of the season. Will this one or the one in the Gulf be named Bret? I would say, with the current looks of the systems. Bret will be in the East Atlantic.
We Will have time to watch TD#4. More updates tomorrow.
For more information on TD#4 see the Current Storm Spotlight for TD#4.
For more information on TD#3 see the Current Storm Spotlight for TD#3.
