- Tropical Depression 11 formed Tuesday afternoon in the Atlantic Ocean, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Should it reach that threshold, it will become the 10th named storm of the season, taking the name Josephine, and may take a track into the Caribbean, though it is too early to say with certainty.

Conditions will favor the system to continue to develop over the next day or two, the hurricane center said.

As of the 11 p.m. advisory, the depression is maintaining its strength and is producing winds up to 35 miles per hour, and gusting to 45, while moving to the west at 14 miles per hour.

The depression is moving toward the west near 14 miles per hour, and this general motion is expected to continue through Wednesday.

Significant weakening could happen as the depression moves toward the northern Leeward Islands later this week when it encounters a southwesterly shear that could tear the system apart, th NHC said.

If T.D. 11 strengthens into a tropical storm, the next name on the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Names list is Josephine.

The other remaining names for 2020 are Kyle, Laura, Marco, Nana, Omar, Paulette, Rene, Sally, Teddy, Vicky and Wilfred.

That season remains the most active on record, with 31 named storms, such that meteorologists ran out of letters in the Latin alphabet to name them, and six were named for letters of the Greek alphabet.
