One of two tropical waves in the far Atlantic is now a depression and is expected to reach tropical storm strength shortly.
TD #14 is currently moving quickly westward, but the National Hurricane Center expects it will slow down a bit over the weekend before turning west-northwestward early next week. For now, it is no threat to the Gulf Coast.
The other wave has a high chance of becoming a tropical depression over the next five days and could be one to watch for the Gulf Coast.
Elsewhere, Jose continues to crawl across the Atlantic and could threaten parts of the East Coast with high surf and life-threatening rip currents in the coming days.
