A new disturbance has developed in the eastern Atlantic.  It is currently located about 600 miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands.


It may develop into a tropical depression before the weekend.  If it obtains winds of 39 mph or greater, it will be named Lorenzo.

Upper-level winds will prevent the system from growing too much over the weekend.  The suite of computer models shows a gradual westward track over the next week.


We will continue to monitor this system in case it poses a threat to the United States.

Additional updates can be found in the CBS 6 Hurricane Tracker.
