Tropical Depression Eight Is "Potential Threat"

Tropical Depression Eight Is

The Tropical Depression is expected to stay well off to our east and will not impact our coast here in North Carolina.

As of 5 p.m. Sunday afternoon, Tropical Storm Gert was producing an area of maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour, making it a minimal tropical storm force system.

The administration initially predicted that the ocean could see anywhere from 11-17 named tropical storm systems this year. Tropical Depression 8 (TD 8) formed from what was Invest 99L Saturday evening around 10 PM CDT. This, along with a persistent ridge of high pressure east of the system in the Atlantic, will help to steer the storm away from the American east coast and then out toward open water. The NHC advises that it is still capable of dropping heavy rains on Florida over the next few days, though, even if it doesn't organize.

New 9/11 victim identified, almost 16 years later
His name has been withheld at his family's request, the New York City medical examiner's office said. Investigators started using new, more successful DNA technology earlier this year to identify them.

Now Gert is expected to strengthen slightly in the coming days with winds maxing out near 65mph by Tuesday afternoon before beginning to weaken as it moves into the cooler waters in the north Atlantic.

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