Tropical Depression Number Six Forms as the Atlantic Awakens : The Alabama Weather Blog

2 min read

Tropical Depression Number 6 has formed this afternoon about 850 miles east of the northern Leeward Islands.

It is not expected to become a tropical storm, and in fact, it is expected to weaken to a remnant low pressure system by Monday as it turns northwest to the east of the islands.

I will have an update on all the systems in the Atlantic that present a threat of tropical development over the next seven days, as well as Eastern Pacific Hurricane Hilary, which will become a historic storm tomorrow in Southern California.
