Tropical Storm Gordon has formed in the Atlantic but is expected to move away from the United States.

Gordon's maximum sustained winds early Thursday are near 40 mph (65 kph). The U.S. National Hurricane Center says some strengthening is forecast over the next two days and Gordon could become a hurricane over the weekend.

Gordon is centered about 585 miles (940 kilometers) east of Bermuda and is moving north-northeast near 14 mph (22 kph).

The storm's forecast track shows it moving farther east in the Atlantic over the next few days and the hurricane center says those in the Azores should monitor its progress.

Meanwhile in the Pacific, Tropical Depression Hector is weakening and is expected to become a remnant low later in the day.
