Tropical Depression Eight forms east of the Bahamas

Unfavorable conditions have limited significant development over the past few days.

Of more concern, though, is a system located 200 miles north of the northern Leeward Islands, 99L, which has a 50 percent chance of developing into a tropical cyclone over the next five days.

The next name on the list is Gert if Eight becomes a tropical storm.

"At this time, the more likely scenario is for the tropical system to stay offshore", AccuWeather meteorologist Dan Kottlowski said in a report.

Tropical Storm Jova formed in the Pacific Ocean off Mexico's west coast, but it quickly weakened into a depression Saturday and forecasters said it posed no threat to land.

Tropical Depression Eight's sustained winds are at 35 miles per hour and the minimum pressure is at 1011 millibars.

The Atlantic has had six named storms, including one hurricane (Franklin), so far this year.

This system will begin to turn more to the north on Sunday east of the U.S. That is because it will be sandwiched between the western periphery of high pressure in the central Atlantic and an incoming cold front across the eastern U.S.

Regardless of the depression remaining offshore, the non-tropical system set to whisk it away from the USA will first enhance the risk for flash flooding in the southeastern US early this week.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs through November 30.
