MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) --  A better-developed disturbance in the central parts of the southern North Atlantic has shown further progress in acquiring enough organization to be given high confidence to turn into the latest tropical depression, possibly within the next 48 hours.  The system is projected to move west-northwest and remain over open Atlantic waters.  Dry air nearby may slow its strengthening efforts in the near term.  Regardless of strength potential, most forecasts keep the storm to the north of the Greater Antilles and far off the United States east coast through the end of this week.

The next name on the tropical storm list is Don.

Aside from this, there are no other points of interest currently in the Atlantic basin.
