Tropical Depression #6 has formed in the far eastern Atlantic

Tropical Depression #6 has formed in the far eastern Atlantic, but the storm is not expected to have any impact on land.

The official forecast has the storm moving in a northerly motion. The forecast track keeps the cyclone well away from land for the next 5 days.

The depression is currently in an environment of light vertical wind shear. The large-scale models forecast some increase in southerly shear after 24 hours, which should persist through the end of the forecast period. Despite the shear, the intensity guidance forecasts slow but steady strengthening.
