A disturbance off the west coast of Africa developed into Tropical Depression # 9 Sunday afternoon.  Further strengthening will continue over the next few days.

After becoming Tropical Storm Humberto, the storm may reach hurricane status before the end of the week.  Computer models show the storm moving northwestward, then taking a turn to the northeast.

Humberto will stay in the far eastern Atlantic, and will pose no threat to the United States.
