Tropical Depression 8 Forms in the Atlantic

Tropical Depression 8 Forms in the Atlantic”

Now located roughly 150 miles northeast of the Turks and Caicos Islands, the disturbance, referred to by the NHC as 99L, has organized since yesterday, becoming better defined and producing more rain. The National Hurricane Center is forecasting tropical storm strength by Sunday night, which will make tropical storm Gert, the seventh named storm of the season.

Conditions are gradually becoming more conducive for development, and a tropical depression could form during the next day or two.

Tropical Depression 8 has formed in the western Atlantic and is expected to become Tropical Storm Gert on Sunday.

The most likely future track for the storm keeps it over the open waters of the Atlantic, in between the southeastern US and Bermuda.

A tropical system has to have a closed, defined center of circulation and sustained winds of 39 miles per hour to become a tropical storm and get a name.

The favored offshore track would limit the hazards to cruise and shipping interests, as well as beachgoers.

Is it anything to worry about on the East Coast?

At the moment, it appears this alleyway will set up far enough east that the USA would avoid any direct impacts, but increased surf along the East Coast is possible.

"Elsewhere in the Atlantic Ocean, the system that attempted to brew just east of Florida lost its chance to develop", AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.
