Tropical Depression Eight forms east of the Bahamas

13 August 2017, 06:04 | Opal Carroll

1 of 2 systems in the Atlantic could bring tropical trouble to SC coast, meteorologists say

Tropical wave moves northwest toward US; but landfall unlikely

It's moving to the north-northwest at about 17 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour.

At 5 a.m., the center of Tropical Depression No. 8 was located about 310 miles north-northeast of the southern Bahamas.

If named, the storm will become Tropical Storm Gert. Also, the non-tropical system that is expected to push the storm to the east is anticipated to drop a significant amount of rain in its wake, and this could lead to localized flash flooding in the southeastern part of the country.

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 said, environmental conditions are expected to be good enough to allow Eight to become a tropical storm on Sunday, and it should strengthen as it moves northward in the western Atlantic.

The low pressure area off the coast of Florida is now moving north and is given a slight, 10 percent, chance of becoming a tropical cyclone over the next five days.

That wave has just moved off the coast of Africa and is expected to move westward over the next few days.

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