Tropical Storm Dean will probably be born later today in the Atlantic and will begin to show up in the news as it approaches the Eastern Carribean this weekend. Conditions suggest that it won't curl up to the North Atlantic and if it becomes a threat to the U.S. it could be about this time next week.
Meanwhile there's activity in the Gulf of Mexico north of the Yucatan Pennisula that will be investigated today. Somewhat near the spot that Wilma got her legs in 2005.
We'll be watching all this as we are just now heading into the more active portion of the season.
