Tropical Depression Four forms in the east central Atlantic

Tropical Depression Four formed late Wednesday night in the east-central Atlantic.

TD 4 will likely have a rough road ahead. The tropical cyclone will continue to encounter dry air from the Saharan Air Layer — as well as increased vertical wind shear down the road as it moves west-northwest.

Wind Shear:

We will have to watch TD 4… or what is left of it… as it approaches the US east coast early next week. Regardless of what “condition” TD 4 is in… we may see an increase in rainfall from it next week if it continues west.

If TD 4 were to strengthen to a tropical storm it would be named “Don.”

We will keep watching it for you.
