Named Storm Lee formed out of Tropical Depression 14 and is currently in the east central Atlantic near where Hurricane Irma formed two weeks ago. There are unfavorable conditions ahead of Named Storm Lee and it is projected to move northwest and reduce in intensity over the next week. Unless Name Storm Lee starts to take a more westerly track, this will be our only mention of this storm.

A NEW area of concern is Tropical Depression 15 which MAY become named storm Maria within 24 hours. This Depression is about 700 miles east southeast of the Lesser Antilles and will be going into favorable conditions for development. Projections are that Tropical Depression 15, may become a Tropical Storm and then a Hurricane and travel into the northern Caribbean near the old track of Hurricane Irma. We will start a separate unofficial advisory if Tropical Depression 15 eventually elevates to Hurricane status. There is a possibility that this system will follow the same track as Irma through the northern Caribbean Islands.
