UPDATE 9/19/21 11 PM

Tropical Storm Rose remains a minimal tropical storm with maximum sustained wind of 40 mph. It is now moving to the northwest at 16 mph. Some strengthening is possible Monday with it moving over warm water with low vertical wind shear, but wind shear will increase Tuesday and it will continue to move to the northwest and eventually move over cooler water so it will gradually weaken mid week through the weekend. Rose will not impact any land areas.

UPDATE 9/19/21 5 PM

As we expected td #17 has become Tropical Storm Rose. Maximum sustained wind is at 40 mph as it moves to the NNW at 16 mph. It is forecast to move to the northwest tonight or Monday and continue that motion for the next several days. Tropical storm force wind extends 35 miles from its center. The structure of Rose and its deep convection have improved over the past 6 hours and environmental conditions are conducive for further development with warm water temperatures and low vertical wind shear. By Tuesday wind shear will increase and Rose will move over cooler water which will start its weakening process. Rose will not impact any land areas.

UPDATE 9/19/21 11 AM

TD #17 is expected to strengthen later tonight or early Monday into Tropical Storm Rose as wind shear decreases later today. It is still moving to the NNW at 14 mph and will eventually move to the northwest. By Tuesday wind shear will increase which will gradually weaken the storm. It looks like this depression will not impact any land areas.

FIRST UPDATE 9/19/21 5 AM

The second tropical depression has formed in as many days in the Atlantic. This is number seventeen. Maximum sustained wind is at 35 mph and it is moving to the NNW at 14 mph. This motion should continue for the next day or so before it moves to the northwest and continues that direction toward colder water. Some strengthening is expected Sunday and Monday which means it is forecast to strengthen into Tropical Storm Rose. By Tuesday environmental conditions will become less conducive for development and this system will begin to weaken. It appears as though it will not impact any land areas.
