Tropical Depression 11 forms over the subtropical central Atlantic.

Tropical Depression 11 formed late Saturday, and was moving toward the northeast near 12 mph. According to the National Hurricane Center, a faster northeastward motion is expected through Monday

As of 11 p.m. Saturday, maximum sustained winds were near 35 mph with higher gusts. Forecasters said gradual strengthening was expected through Sunday, and the depression was expected to strengthen to a tropical storm later Saturday night or Sunday.

The system is then forecast to become extratropical by Monday, forecasters said.

Disturbance 3: Emerging off of Africa

A robust tropical wave is expected to emerge off the coast of west Africa by the middle of next week. Environmental conditions appear somewhat conducive for gradual development toward the end of next week as the system moves west-northwestward to northwestward.

There will be a higher likelihood of development later next week, but the system looks to curve out-to-sea in the central Atlantic.

The National Hurricane Center gives this disturbance a 70 percent chance to develop over the next five days.

The next names for the 2021 hurricane season are Julian, Kate and Larry.
