Tropical Storm Gordon at 7:45am EDT today.
Elsewhere, a new easterly wave is leaving the African coast today after traveling across the continent for the past 5 days. The embedded 1012(ish)mb Low is centered near 9N 16W. This will definitely be something to watch closely, as many of the global models develop it and keep it somewhat south and near 15N 50W in a week. Once Gordon is out of the picture (soon), all attention will be diverted to this system, and regional models will soon be run on it as well. Once (and if) named, the next name on the list is Helene.
