Tropical Depression Four not expected to strengthen

Tropical Depression Four is located about 1545 miles east of the Lesser Antilles and is moving to the west-northwest at 14 miles per hour.

This is the second time this season tropical wave shows signs of development so far out over the Atlantic.

Colorado State University updated its annual hurricane season outlook for the 2017 Atlantic season.

The system would have to become a tropical storm with winds of 40mph or greater to be given a name. Three of the eight hurricanes are forecast to be Category 3 or stronger on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.

On June 16, authorities placed the suspect from Champaign, Illinois under constant surveillance. Zhang's father, Ronggao Zhang, traveled to IL from Nanping, China, to be closer to the search.

Recent progress in forecasting the intensity of hurricanes - which has lagged behind storm track forecasting - could be undermined by proposed cuts in federal funding for tropical weather research, says the retiring chief of a team of US hurricane specialists. Showers and storms will become more likely again next Tuesday and Wednesday. The good news is, forecasters believe adverse conditions will keep the system from strengthening and could even pull it apart. Wind shear is also expected to increase, and limit any intensification of the storm.

In June and July, storms tend to form in the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico area.

Klotzbach and Bell also said as a result of the busier season, the odds of a major hurricane impacting the USA have gone up.
