Weekend tropical outlook: A depression could develop in the Atlantic

13 Août 2017

At 5 a.m., the center of Tropical Depression No. 8 was located about 310 miles north-northeast of the southern Bahamas.

This storm will likely become Tropical Storm Gert by Sunday night or early Monday.

Meteorologists at the National Hurricane Center have their eyes on two disturbances in the Atlantic, one of which is situated just off the east coast of Florida. It is now moving north-northwest at 13 miles per hour.

Gradual strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and the depression is expected to become a Tropical Storm later Sunday.
