Tropical Depression #4 is now Tropical Storm Dean. (TD#5 is in the Gulf, heading west.) Dean is heading west/northwest and is several days away, and the spaghetti strands are mostly pointing west. It's too early to tell where it's going, but it's predicted to become a category 3 hurricane Sunday. Here's an earlier report:
A VIGOROUS TROPICAL WAVE...LOCATED OVER THE FAR EASTERN ATLANTIC OCEAN JUST WEST OF THE COAST OF AFRICA...IS PRODUCING DISORGANIZED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. CONDITIONS APPEAR FAVORABLE FOR GRADUAL DEVELOPMENT OF THIS SYSTEM AND A TROPICAL DEPRESSION COULD FORM DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS IT MOVES WESTWARD AT 15 TO 20 MPH.
