First tropical depression of the season forms in the Caribbean - 6:30 pm EDT


The first tropical depression of the season has formed in the Caribbean. It is forecast to strengthen in a tropical storm in the near future. Tropical Storm Watches have already been posted for western parts of Cuba. The National Hurricane Center is forecasting the storm to eventually make landfall on the US Gulf Coast as a tropical storm. However, it is very possibile for it to reach hurricane strength by then.


Below is a map of the area in question and current sea surface temperatures:
