Tropical Depression Thirteen forms in the central Atlantic
By News 2 Staff
Tropical Depression Thirteen formed late Monday morning in the central Atlantic about 650 miles east-southeast of Bermuda.
"Although this one will likely get a name, it won't become too strong and is not a threat to the United States," said Storm Team 2 Meteorologist Josh Marthers.
The cyclone will likely become a tropical storm later today or tomorrow before weakening to a depression or non-tropical low pressure system late in the week.
"We will be watching the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico closely over the next week or two as an area of enhanced upward motion moves over the region," added Marthers. "Although we haven't had a blockbuster season, it's important to note we have through the month of November to go before all is said and done."
