Meteorologists at the National Hurricane Center are saying that a new tropical depression situated in the Atlantic Ocean could be named Tropical Storm Gordon by the end of the day.  This depression, which is currently situated 930 miles east of the Windward Islands in the Caribbean, has sustained maximum winds of 35 mph and is moving at a rate of 23 mph westward.  The center is saying that storm watches and advisories could be issued and reissued throughout the day today.

It is worth noting that Tropical Storm Ernesto has now become a depression in the mountains of Mexico.  Ernesto is weakening but is dumping copious amounts of torrential rain over the region where it is currently resides.
