We have the 2nd "true" Cape Verde storm of the 2005 Atlantic Hurricane Season.
First was hurricane Irene.





...19TH DEPRESSION OF SEASON FORMS IN THE FAR EASTERN ATLANTIC...

MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS ARE NEAR 30 MPH... 45 KM/HR...WITH HIGHER
GUSTS. SOME STRENGTHENING IS FORECAST... AND THE DEPRESSION COULD
BECOME A TROPICAL STORM WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS. NHC


Once becoming a tropical storm it will gain the name of Stan.


Goofy storm names lately, considering hurricane Otis is approaching
Baja, Mexico and Wilma is at the end of the 2005 Atlantic list.

Looks pretty busy out there:



I guess that last one closest to Africa is #19 now.

If all these develop, we'll run out of the names.

Doesn't look like this one will be any threat to land:

TD19 is most likely a fish, since the ridge isn't that strong to the North, although some models are hinting at a more westerly track.

99L still bears watching the the Caribbean and may become a threat to southern Texas...rather disorganized at this time.

Hi All,

Here is the latest on TD #19 fro Accuweather:




As of 11:00 p.m. Friday, Tropical Depression 19 was located near 12.3 north and 33.1 west, or about 660 miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands. It was drifting to the northwest wit maximum sustained winds of 35 mph. Estimated minimum central pressure was 1006 millibars, or 29.72 inches. TD 19 should slowly track north and could become a tropical storm within 12-24 hours. If it did, it would be named Stan. This feature should generally track to the north-northwest toward the open waters of the Atlantic over the weekend.



and here is an image from NOAA:

This storm isn't a threat to land, based on current model runs and recent
discussions at the NHC.

ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS ARE ONLY EXPECTED TO REMAIN FAVORABLE FOR
INTENSIFICATION TO OCCUR FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS OR SO WHILE THE
SYSTEM REMAINS OVER 26-27C SSTS. BY 48 HOURS... UPPER-LEVEL
SOUTHWESTERLY SHEAR IS FORECAST TO BE AT LEAST 25 KT AND TO
GRADUALLY INCREASE TO NEAR 40 KT BY 72 HOURS. THE INCREASING
VERTICAL SHEAR AND COOLER SSTS SHOULD CREATE AT LEAST SLOW
WEAKENING... BUT THE SYSTEM COULD DISSIPATE BY 96 HOURS AS
INDICATED BY THE SHIPS MODEL. NHC



Rather disorganized, I would say this system doesn't become a tropical storm
before it dissipates. TD20 will most likely be named Stan.
