NHC is issuing advisories on newly formed Tropical Depression Eleven. At 5 p.m. AST, the center of the depression was located over the tropical Atlantic Ocean about 1110 miles (1790 km) west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands and about 1450 miles (2335 km) east of the Lesser Antilles.
It’s moving toward the west near 16 mph (26 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue through Wednesday. A west-northwestward motion at a similar forward speed is forecast to begin Wednesday night and continue through the rest of the week. Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. Some strengthening is forecast to take place during the next 48 hours, and the depression is expected to become a tropical storm by Wednesday night. When that occurs, it will be named Josephine.
