Tropical Depression One Forms East of the Carolinas

11AM 28 May 2009
And Tropical Depression One is born. The NHC discussion indicates they think it will become a Tropical Storm before moving over colder waters in the Atlantic. If Tropical Depression One does become a Tropical Storm, it will be the fourth early season Tropical Storm to develop in the last decade (Tropical Storm Arthur in May 2008, Subtropical Storm Andrea in May, 2007, and Tropical Storm Ana in 2003).


8AM 28 May 2009
The low east of the Carolinas is holding together impressively, it is about to enter the Gulf Stream, It still has a low (30% or less) chance of forming into something, although if it does it likely will be short lived and continue to move away from the United States.

Convection has bubbled up this morning, which indicates it may be trying to organize, but this is slightly away from the center of circulation.

Original Update
A new low, designated Invest 91L, has formed east of the Carolinas. It is unlikely to develop into a depression, but it is worth watching. Again, a bit early before the start of the season on June 1st.

In the past, when we have seen early attempts at development we've wound up with mostly quiet Junes, and I do not see anything different about it.

91 should just bring a bit of rain and breezy conditions to the Carolina coastline.

This is hurricane preparedness week over at the National Hurricane Center. Check it out for some good information regarding Hurricane Preparedness.
