TD#8 Forms in Central Atlantic
08:02 PM EDT - 07 September 1999
TD#7 moved inland, and as expected, we have a new depression in the Central Atlantic.
This depression is in a favorable environment for development and may once again move close to the US coast. Threat to Florida is minimal according to models right now, but that could change as it is quite a distance from the US currently and long range models are about worthless at this range. The islands may have to deal with it but this is up in the air also. Plenty of room for discussion. The depression is expected to strengthen at a fairly slow, but steady clip.
