UPDATE IV 4 PM 7/5/2020

Tropical Depression 5 is moving quickly to the northeast at 26 mph. Its losing its tropical components and its difficult to pinpoint the center of circulation. This system will become extra tropical over the next several days as it continues to move out in open water.

UPDATE III 11 PM 7/4/2020

Tropical Depression 5 is moving just north of Bermuda bringing rain and windy conditions to the area. It is expected to encounter dry air and wind shear so it is not expected to strengthen into much more than a week tropical storm. It would be named Edouard as the 5th named storm of the season.

Tropical Depression 5 currently has maximum sustained wind of 35 mph as it moves quickly to the ENE at 16 mph. It is expected to become Tropical Storm Edouard tonight or early tomorrow. There will be no threat to land as it is moving away from the United States.

FIRST UPDATE 11 AM 7/4/2020

Tropical Depression 5 forms in the Atlantic this morning just west of Bermuda. Conditions are not overly favorable for significant intensification, but we could see it strengthen to a tropical storm later this weekend. The next name on the list is Edouard. There is no threat to land with this system but we will continue to monitor it over the next few days.
