TD4 arrives while TD3 grows up

Seems while all of us were out enjoying fireworks last night, TD3 developed into TS Cindy (as expected) and TD4 formed out in the Atlantic.

According to the 5AM discussion, Cindy isn't expected to get much stronger before hitting the Louisiana coast somewhere.

In the meantime, there is also TD4 to keep an eye on. The forecast has this one becoming TS Dennis in the next day or so and possibly becoming the first hurricane of the season by the end of the week.

From the 5AM discussion:

THERE IS NO SHEAR AHEAD OF THE CYCLONE SO A GRADUAL STRENGTHENING IS INDICATED...AND THE DEPRESSION COULD BECOME A HURRICANE IN THE WESTERN CARIBBEAN SEA. THIS IS CONSISTENT WITH SHIPS AND THE GFDL MODELS.
