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

The storm is not expected to reach hurricane status as it wanders to the west-northwest into a zone of strong winds and cooler waters.

"This unfriendly environment will cause Nadine to weaken and degenerate into a tropical wave by this coming 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 is on track to make landfall in the Florida Panhandle as a Category 4 hurricane around midday Wednesday.

Long-lived Leslie, located over 1,000 miles away from the Azores, continues its long journey across the Atlantic as it restrengthened into a hurricane on Tuesday night. Prior to reaching the Canary Islands, the storm may loop back around and traverse the open Atlantic into late October.
