Tropical Storm Gert expected to form

Tropical wave moves northwest toward US; but landfall unlikely

Tropical Storm Gert is expected to be about midway between Bermuda and North Carolina on Monday and Tuesday.

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 depression had winds of 35 miles per hour.

The administration initially predicted that the ocean could see anywhere from 11-17 named tropical storm systems this year.

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 disturbance developed into Tropical Depression Eight Saturday evening.




There's also another tropical wave that forecasters are watching as of Sunday morning.

Additionally, there is a small area off the coast of Africa with a low chance of development over the next few days.

The latest information from the National Hurricane Center can be found here.

The chance of formation over the next two day is at 60%, and 70% over the next five days.

Because of this, the National Hurricane Center is not issuing any watches or warnings on Gert.
