Tropical Storm "Emily" brewing; may enter Caribbean by Monday

Examiner.com: "The National Hurricane Center (NHC) says a large area of low pressure over the western Atlantic might become the 5th named storm of the 2011 Atlantic hurricane season by Monday afternoon. If so, its name will be 'Emily'. The NHC says the odds of its development within the next 48 hours are “high”, at better than even money.

Tropical Storm 'Don' was a very compact storm while this new area of concern is quite broad and represents a substantial threat to become a medium to large hurricane."
