The disturbance that I mentioned on Friday that was east of the Lesser Antilles has indeed gotten better organized. It is now centered roughly 350 miles east of the Leeward Islands and moving west at 12mph. It is nearing tropical depression status, and could be upgraded to TD8 today or tomorrow. If and when it becomes a tropical storm, the name will be Gonzalo.
