Tropical Depression Eight forms east of the Bahamas

Located a couple hundred miles north of the Puerto Rico, the disturbance remained messy Friday afternoon but is expected to encounter favorable conditions over the weekend.

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.

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. 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.
