Tropical Depression #14 has formed off the coast of Africa, south of the Cape Verde or Cabo Verde islands. On a westward path in the Atlantic, it will likely become a tropical storm in the next day or two, and possibly a hurricane. The current position keeps it away from any land or island for a week, if it even lasts that long.
The next name on the list of tropical storms this year is Lee.
