The National Hurricane Center says that a tropical disturbance deep in the Atlantic could become a Tropical Depression or Tropical Storm soon.
As of 1am Central Time on July 29th, 2014, the National Hurricane Center was giving a “developing area of low pressure” in the Atlantic Ocean a 70%, or high, probability of becoming a Tropical Depression or Tropical Storm soon.
The system is currently located roughly halfway between Africa’s far west coast and South America and moving to the west/northwest between 10 to 15 miles per hour.
If the storm does become a Tropical Depression, it will be the third of the season. If it becomes a Tropical Storm, it will be named Bertha.
