Tropical Storm Cindy has formed in the Atlantic, making it the second earliest storm to form so far east in the Atlantic on record. Tropical Storm Cindy is east of Tropical Storm Bret and is forecast to pursue a different track than Bret did as it moves west through the Atlantic Hurricane Basin. While the National Hurricane Center (NHC) upgraded Tropical Storm Cindy from the tropical depression it was earlier today, there are no watches or warnings for this system at this time.
Right now, Tropical Storm Cindy is located about 1,110 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. With winds of 40 mph and a minimum central pressure of 1006 mb or 29.71″, the tropical storm is moving to the west-northwest at 14 mph.
The NHC expects Cindy to continue its forward direction and speed for the next few days. On the forecast track provided by the NHC, the system is expected to remain well northeast of the northern Leeward Islands through early next week.
