In mid January a section of the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) split off from the main zone. This section would gradually develop a low pressure area inside itself and start gaining more organization as it trekked over sea surface temperatures of 91°F. The area of disturbed weather eventually became organized enough to become Tropical Depression 01N while at an extremely southern latitude of 3.5°N. The depression struggled to intensify initially due to southwesterly shear and moderate amounts of dry air. However, 18 hours later it eventually organized further to become a tropical storm and it was named Aileen.
