Very good point, cieldumort ... although, there are a number of storms on the history page that did curve out to sea, and yet were tracked origin-wise to the Cape Verde area. I wonder how they have even semi-accurate tracks out in that area that pre-date satellites, though, but that's a different issue. Also, the history only considers systems that were a TD in August within 400 miles of the location. If the system was a storm, or a wave that was classfied 400+ miles further west, it isn't shown. I've only seen about three T.D.'s form that far out since I've been tracking these beasts (still hard to believe that even with all of the record activity in 2005, we had ZERO Cape Verde storms!).
