Tropical Depression Eight forms in Atlantic

Tropical Depression Eight forms in Atlantic

That said, environmental conditions are expected to be good enough to allow Eight to become a tropical storm on Sunday, and it should strengthen as it moves northward in the western Atlantic.

The National Hurricane Center said on Sunday afternoon that Gert was centered about 505 miles (812 kilometers) west-southwest of Bermuda and had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph (64 kph).

Gert will not be a big problem for the United States thanks in part to a cold front settling into the southeastern corner of the country.

The depression is now sporting wind speeds of 35 miles per hour and is moving north-northwest at around 14 miles per hour. It is expected to remain a tropical storm through the first half of next week. The NHC advises that it is still capable of dropping heavy rains on Florida over the next few days, though, even if it doesn't organize. It has a 20 percent chance of becoming a tropical depression over the next five days. However, well before it reaches the east coast of the U.S.it is forecast to turn towards the northeast and move out to sea.

We are getting into the peak of the hurricane season.
