The Tropical Storm Express train

While I was blissfully sleeping and recovering from the floor installation, TD5 popped up in the middle of the Atlantic, just a few days away from the Carribean. According to the 5AM discussion, it's forecast to become TS Emily later on today and then a hurricane by the end of the week. Based on the early track, this is one I will have to keep an eye on.

And then further east coming off the African coast is yet another tropical wave that may develop into something in a little while.

In the meantime, Dennis has weakened to a depression and will just drop a bunch of rain over the midwest for the next few days.
