The Atlantic basin's newest tropical storm, Nadine, will likely have a quick demise late this week into this weekend.

Tropical Depression 15 formed a few hundred miles to the west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands early Tuesday morning. The feature strengthened into Tropical Storm Nadine on Tuesday afternoon.

Nadine is traveling on a path that will take it into a zone of strong winds and a pocket of cool water that will ultimately lead to its weakening.

“This unfriendly environment will cause Nadine to weaken and degenerate into a tropical wave by this weekend,” said AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski.

Nadine is expected to dissipate far enough away from the northeastern Caribbean Islands to not stir rough surf in these areas.

Elsewhere in the Atlantic basin, Michael made landfall along the Florida Panhandle as a Category 4 hurricane during the early afternoon on Wednesday.

Long-lived Leslie, located over 500 miles away from the Azores, continues its long journey across the Atlantic as it restrengthened into a hurricane on Tuesday night. Leslie will move into the eastern Atlantic by Saturday before making landfall in Portugal later Sunday or Sunday night.

Elsewhere in the Atlantic basin, a broad area of showers and thunderstorms over the Caribbean may congeal into a more compact area of disturbed weather at some point later this weekend and early next week. There is the potential for tropical storm formation in this area during early next week.
