Tropical Storm Gert expected to form

Tropical Depression Eight formed late Saturday night in the Atlantic Ocean, northeast of the Bahamas.

The depression is now sporting wind speeds of 35 miles per hour and is moving north-northwest at around 14 miles per hour.

If named, the storm will become Tropical Storm Gert. As of Sunday morning the system was weak, but is expected to strengthen into a tropical storm by the end of the day.

The disturbance is forecast to move northwestward through the weekend and to turn northeastward - away from the US coast - early next week.

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.

However, a turn to the north and eventually northeast is forecast to begin tonight, which should steer the storm away from the U.S.

That wave has just moved off the coast of Africa and is expected to move westward over the next few days. It has a 20 percent chance of becoming a tropical depression over the next five days.
