Tropical Depression Eight forms in Atlantic

Tropical wave moves northwest toward US; but landfall unlikely

A tropical depression in the western Atlantic is expected to become a tropical storm later today.

As of the 5pm advisory, Gert was located north of the Bahamas with maximum sustained wind speeds of 40 miles per hour and was traveling north northwest at 10 miles per hour.

The tropical depression east of the Bahamas will likely be designated a tropical storm later on Sunday.

Gert has sustained winds of 40mph and gusts up to 50mph.

A turn toward the north is forecast for tonight, followed by a turn toward the north-northeast by Monday night.

Of more concern, though, is a system located 200 miles north of the northern Leeward Islands, 99L, which has a 50 percent chance of developing into a tropical cyclone over the next five days.

Now Gert is expected to strengthen slightly in the coming days with winds maxing out near 65mph by Tuesday afternoon before beginning to weaken as it moves into the cooler waters in the north Atlantic.

When it does, it will be given the name Gert. We are a few weeks from the height of the Atlantic Hurricane Season, which is around September 10th.
