Developing storm in Atlantic could threaten US

A tropical system churning way out in the Atlantic Ocean has a 70 percent chance of strengthening into Tropical Storm Don over the next five days, according to the National Weather Service.

Where it would go after that - if it forms, and if it's still anything by then - is too early to say.

Since 2009, James Franklin has overseen the hurricane specialists who release tropical storm forecasts and warnings.

If the storm forms, it will be the fourth of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season and would be named Don. This June saw two.

The cell is expected to move west-northwest in a day or so, forecasters said, and should stay in that direction throughout the remainder of the week.

US weather forecasters are watching a storm in the far Atlantic off Africa.

NHC says the showers and thunderstorms have become better organized almost 700 miles West-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.

A tropical disturbance in the Atlantic Ocean has become better organized, increasing the chances it will become a depression later this week.

"That could easily change in the next 12 hours", said Lowcountry based meteorologist Shea Gibson, of WeatherFlow.
