Gert may become season's second hurricane... watching deep tropics for possible Harvey

An African wave that I first mentioned on August 4th was upgraded to Tropical Depression 8 and then to Tropical Storm Gert over the weekend (it exited Africa on the 3rd).
Elsewhere, eyes are on a new wave that just exited the African coast on Saturday.  This is nothing to be concerned about now, just something to keep an eye on.  The next name on the list is Harvey.

An update on these two systems can be found on the Capital Weather Gang blog:
