A disturbance over the Central Atlantic Ocean has garnered enough circulation to become Tropical Depression 14 at 11 a.m. EDT Tuesday, Sep. 11, 2012.

The feature may continue to remain in a favorable environment for modest additional development the next several days, perhaps becoming a tropical storm.

The next name on the list of storms in the Atlantic Basin is Nadine.

According to Dan Kottlowski, head of's Hurricane Center, "The system should be guided along on a northwest, then northerly course this week."

A trough of low pressure that guided Michael on a northerly path should also influence this system.

"The feature will not directly affect any landmass through the next five days and could remain over the ocean for its entire recognizable life," Kottlowski said.

Be sure to keep checking back with the Hurricane Center for the latest on the all the tropical troubles.
