TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – The National Hurricane Center continues to monitor Tropical Depression Five which formed in the Atlantic Saturday morning.
The storm poses no threat to Florida as it races northeast, away from the United States and Bermuda at 21 miles per hour. Winds were sustained at 35 mph with higher gusts.
As of the 11 a.m. advisory from the National Hurricane Center, the center of Five was 185 miles northeast of Bermuda. Gusty winds and showers associated with TD Five will decrease throughout the day.
Tropical Depression Five could strengthen at some point Sunday or Sunday night into a tropical storm. However, it is expected to lose its tropical characteristics on Monday as it moves farther north.
If wind speeds strengthen to 40 mph before turning into an extra-tropical cyclone, it would be named Edouard.
