Tropical depression forms off the East Coast

As of Saturday morning it was about 150 miles northeast of the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Tropical Depression Eight will attempt to strengthen into the newest tropical storm offshore of the southeastern United States in the coming day or two. 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.

If it develops into a tropical storm it will be given the name Gert, but even if that happens it isn't expected to become a hurricane according to AccuWeather, as conditions for such development are unfavorable.

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

In an advisory issued at 10 p.m. Saturday, the hurricane center said the tropical depression is heading northwest around 13 miles per hour, blowing maximum sustained winds near 35 miles per hour with higher gusts.
