Tropical Depression Eight Forms In Far Atlantic

Another day, another tropical depression.

After one depression quickly became Fernand in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico Tuesday, another depression formed in the far Atlantic Ocean that's expected to become a tropical storm shortly.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Tropical Depression Eight is forecast to remain no stronger than a tropical storm, though the National Hurricane Center notes its intensity forecast is "murky" due to a number of factors.

The system is expected to be a "fish storm" and stay out to sea. It is not a threat to land at this time.

The possible tropical storm could soon have company as the NHC says a tropical wave that's forecast to emerge over open waters by Thursday has a high chance of further development.
