Forecasters say a tropical depression that has formed far out in the Atlantic Ocean is expected to strengthen into a tropical storm on Thursday.
While most eyes were on Tropical Storm Isaac in the Caribbean Sea late Wednesday, the National Hurricane Center in Miami says the most recent tropical depression is about 1045 miles (1682 kilometers) west of the Cape Verde islands.
It has top sustained winds of 35 mph (56 kph) and is moving west-northwest at 17 mph (27 kph). It is expected to continue on that course through Friday, possibly veering east of Florida but nearing Bermuda by Monday night.
