Tropical Depression Eight forms east of the Bahamas

99L strengthened into TD eight forecast to strengthen but stay away from any land

Forecasters give the disturbance a 40 percent chance of developing into a tropical system during the next couple of days and a 60 percent chance of formation by the middle of next week. It is now moving north-northwest at 13 miles per hour.

Tropical Depression 8 formed over the western Atlantic Saturday night and is forecasted to strengthen into a tropical storm by Sunday night. A tropical storm will pass by the coast of North Carolina early this week, but the rain and wind will stay well offshore.

There is also a tropical wave just west of Africa. It is not expected to develop into a hurricane, as conditions will not be conducive for such development, AccuWeather reports. It is now moving to the west-northwest at around 10 to 15 miles per hour and is expected to meet up with a larger area of low pressure southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands in the next few days.
