View Larger
The National Weather Service is starting to track a tropical depression that is, at present headed toward the Southeast Coast, but is still a long way off.
The service reported at 11 a.m. that the center was about 1,300 miles east of the Lesser Antilles, heading west, northwest at 17 mph. At that rate, it would be the weekend at the earliest that it could reach our coast.
Maximum sustained winds are now 35 mph, but the NWS forecasts increases in speed and strength, possibly hitting tropical storm strength by tonight or early Tuesday.
The center's estimated central pressure is 1006 MB, 29.71 inches. If you're tracking it, at 11 a.m. it was near latitude 12.6 north, longitude 41.1 west.
