Tropical Depression Four forms!

On a quick note for those interested...TD Four formed this morning in the far eastern Atlantic Ocean.  Computer guidance is forecasting it to head westward around 17 knots, and most agree that within the next 2-4 days it will gain hurricane strength.  This is very likely as it will track over warm ocean waters and under an upper-level ridge.  Expect this to be our first named hurricane of the season, hurricane Dean.  As for the track of this system...currently it's forecast to head toward the southern Caribbean, but there are still uncertainties of where it may head in the next week.  More to come as this system develops further.
