TD 6 to watch

New tropical depression (#6) in the Atlantic to watch. Still too early to tell whether this will be of any concern, but looks like it's shaping up to become Florence soon.

From today's 5 PM discussion:

THERE IS SOME SOUTHWESTERLY SHEAR TO THE NORTHWEST OF THE CYCLONE...AND THIS COULD LIMIT DEVELOPMENT OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. AFTER THE TROUGH LIFTS OUT...THE ENVIRONMENT SHOULD BECOME MORE FAVORABLE FOR DEVELOPMENT AND BOTH THE SHIPS AND GFDL GUIDANCE BRING THE DEPRESSION TO HURRICANE STRENGTH.
