Weekend tropical outlook: A depression could develop in the Atlantic

Tropical wave moves northwest toward US; but landfall unlikely

The track of the storm takes it between Hatteras and Bermuda on Tuesday, keeping it off the Carolina coastline by approx. The system had sustained winds of 35 miles per hour with gusts up to 46 miles per hour late Saturday night.

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.

99L is now moving northwest and might gather strength as upper-level winds become more favorable for its development over the weekend.

A turn toward the north is forecast for tonight, followed by a turn toward the north-northeast by Monday night. That disturbance developed into Tropical Depression Eight Saturday evening. The hurricane center's forecast said Jova would continue to weaken and likely dissipate Sunday.

When it does, it will be given the name Gert.

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

Over the next few days, Gert will move north-northwest and eventually re-curve out to the open Atlantic.

The biggest effects will be increased surf and rip current along the US Eastern Seaboard.
