Tropical storm train

TD 6 became TS Florence earlier this morning, although there's still about a weeks worth of watching before we need to worry about it.

On the tails of Florence is another system with some potential too. From this morning's Tropical Weather Outlook:

SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ASSOCIATED WITH A TROPICAL WAVE LOCATED SEVERAL HUNDRED MILES WEST OF THE CAPE VERDE ISLANDS HAS CONTINUED TO BECOME BETTER ORGANIZED. ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS APPEAR SOMEWHAT FAVORABLE FOR A TROPICAL DEPRESSION TO DEVELOP DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS THE SYSTEM MOVES WESTWARD AT ABOUT 10 MPH.

'Tis the season.

TS Florence - 05-Sep-06
