New tropical depression in the Atlantic

Posted: Updated:

Another tropical depression has formed in the Atlantic, but its evolution concerning path and strength look uneventful at this time.

Late on July 5th, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) classified the area of low pressure in the central Atlantic as Tropical Depression Four.

With maximum sustained winds just shy of tropical storm force (39 mph), TD-4 is forecast to move generally to the west-northwest over the next five days.

While a little strengthening could occur, the official forecast from the NHC does not bring this system to tropical storm strength. If it did, the name would be “Don.” At this point, the storm looks to stay below Tropical Storm strength through the weekend.

One of the deterrents to the storm strengthening is actually dust/drier air around the system from the Sahara Desert.
