Tropical depression likely to become Atlantic hurricane season's 14th named storm

Tropical depression 14 has formed in the central Atlantic Ocean and is likely to become Tropical Storm Nadine within a day.

The National Hurricane Center said the depression has sustained winds of 35 mph, just under tropical storm strength of 39 mph. It is moving west-northwest at about 15 mph.

The storm is in an environment favorable for strengthening, but probably will not be a threat to land.

Nadine would be the 14th named storm of the 2012 hurricane season in the Atlantic.

Michael, once a hurricane, is now a tropical storm with winds of up 65 mph. Located in the north central Atlantic, it is headed north and is no apparent threat to land.

Leslie, also a hurricane at one point, is now dissipating off the coast of Newfoundland.
