New tropical storm soon? Hurricane center watching area near Bahamas
"This time of year, with so much moisture in place, whenever you get a weak low that comes into the coast, it can certainly enhance the rainfall across the area", said Steven Taylor, senior forecaster with the NWS in Charleston.
A low pressure area located about 150 miles northeast of the Turks and Caicos Islands Saturday morning has become a little better defined and the shower activity has increased somewhat since Friday. The system is expected to head north along the coast before peeling off into the Atlantic early next week.
For those reasons the hurricane center increased the probability that a tropical depression will form to 70 percent and said it could happen in the next 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.
The environment around this storm is improving, with less wind shear and dry air, but these still not ideal conditions should keep Tropical Depression Eight from getting too strong.
