Post Tropical Storm Florence Forms in Eastern Atlantic
By Brian Edwards, Meteorologist

Aug 4, 2012; 8:38 AM ET

Tropical Storm Florence has formed over the eastern Atlantic Ocean; however, it poses no threat to land anytime soon.

When it rains, it pours...tropical systems! Soon after Tropical Storm Ernesto formed in the Atlantic Basin, another strong tropical wave moved off the coast of Africa.

That wave then developed a well-defined center of circulation and was classified as Tropical Depression Six late Friday night.

By Saturday morning, satellite intensity estimates show that sustained winds have ramped up to tropical storm force and we now have Tropical Storm Florence in the Atlantic.

The storm is located several hundred miles southwest of the Cape Verde Islands and it will continue chugging westward through the open waters of the central Atlantic the next few days.

The next question becomes, what impacts could Florence have on the Caribbean?
