TD Four becomes Tropical Storm Dean

The tropical depression four that was out in the Atlantic has now been upgraded to a tropical storm...TS Dean. 
As of 5PM today:
Location:  11.6N, 41.0W.  About 1,390 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.
Movement:  W @ 21mph
Max winds:  40mph
Min pressure:  1004mb
Strengthening is expected over the next 24 hours.  By Day 5, Dean is expected to be a developed hurricane and could possibly reach major hurricane status by late this weekend.
The track of this storm is still uncertain due to the trough in the Atlantic.  This storm has a lot of room to grow and I'll be following it's progress over the next week or so.
