Tropical Depression Nineteen Expected to Become Tropical Storm
We could soon have our 17th storm of the 2017 Atlantic season.
Tropical Depression Nineteen is expected to become a tropical storm later Monday, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) says.
As of 11 a.m., TD 19 had max winds of 35 miles per hour and was moving north-northeast at 3 mph.
The NHC says that a faster north to north-northeast motion is expected during the next couple of days while the system moves in the flow on the west side of a mid-level ridge. Thereafter, an even faster motion toward the northeast is forecast when the cyclone becomes embedded in the mid-latitude westerlies.
If TD 19 continues to gain strength, we could have Tropical Storm Rina by the end of the day.
Tropical depression nineteen is forecast to strengthen over the central Atlantic, but still no threat to land. Here is the latest forecast track. #Tropics #Weather #WeatherNation
