Tropical depression forming in the Caribbean - 12:20 pm EDT
It appears as if there is a tropical depression forming in the Caribbean. A hurricane hunter aircraft is scheduled to go take a look some time today. Be prepared for the possibility that the National Hurricane Center could issue advisories for a tropical depression or even a tropical storm by the end of the day today. While I do not expect a tropical storm to form today, a strong possibility exists for tropical storm formation in this area by the end of the week.
Below is a map of the area in question and current sea surface temperatures:
