Tropical Depression No. 8 Expected To Become Tropical Storm

Tropical Depression Eight formed late Saturday night in the Atlantic Ocean, northeast of the Bahamas. It is expected to be pushed off to the east by a non-tropical system on Tuesday or Wednesday according to AccuWeather, and is not seen as a direct threat to the US coast.

According to the National Hurricane Center, the eighth depression of the season is not expected to make landfall.

No warnings or watches have been issued at this time.

With its current forecast track, the only impact to the United States will be some increased surf along the coast. A tropical storm will pass by the coast of North Carolina early this week, but the rain and wind will stay well offshore. Gert is the next name on the 2017 list of hurricane names.
