I'm not sure, but Gabrielle might have skipped the Tropical Depression #7 step. Coastal watches & warnings are up along the southeast coast. Here's a link to the National Hurricane Center webpage: Subtropical Storm GABRIELLE
And here's an earlier report:
SATELLITE IMAGES INDICATE THAT THE AREA OF LOW PRESSURE LOCATED BETWEEN
BERMUDA AND THE SOUTHEAST U.S. COAST HAS BECOME BETTER ORGANIZED OVERNIGHT.
UPPER-LEVEL WINDS ARE BECOMING MORE FAVORABLE FOR ADDITIONAL
DEVELOPMENT...AND A TROPICAL DEPRESSION COULD FORM LATER TODAY. AN AIR FORCE
RESERVE HURRICANE HUNTER AIRCRAFT IS SCHEDULED TO INVESTIGATE THIS SYSTEM
THIS AFTERNOON. THE LOW IS FORECAST TO MOVE GENERALLY WESTWARD OR
NORTHWESTWARD DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS...AND INTERESTS ALONG THE EAST
COAST OF THE UNITED STATES SHOULD CLOSELY MONITOR THE PROGRESS OF THIS
(Thanks to Lloyd for the bulletin and the link!)
Update 9-10-07: Gabrielle is now a tropical depression and didn't give the inland Carolinas the rain they'd hoped for. It's heading ENE now.
