Tropical Update: Gustav Wannabe?

A stormy area which moved westward into the central Caribbean has become better organized this morning. It has now been designated as Tropical Depression 7. Satellite images have shown well-defined curved bands of convection and the possible development of an eye. If aircraft reconnaissance confirms the impressive appearance of this feature, it could become Tropical Storm Gustav later today. At this point, there is considerable uncertainty in the track forecast, but the official path takes what would then be Gustav at tropical storm strength to the northern coast of Cuba by Friday.
