Nadine has becoming better organized and could still become the next hurricane in the Atlantic Basin.

A disturbance over the Central Atlantic Ocean strengthened Tuesday night into Tropical Storm Nadine.

Nadine will continue to remain in a environment generally favorable for some gradual development the next several days.

According to Dan Kottlowski, head of AccuWeather.com's Hurricane Center, "The system should be guided along on a northwest, then northerly course this week."

A trough of low pressure that guided Michael on a northerly path should also influence this system.

"The feature will not directly affect any landmass through the next five days and could remain over the ocean for its entire recognizable life," Kottlowski said.
