BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Meteorologists with the National Hurricane Center are watching a system in the East-Atlantic that is developing and could strengthen into a tropical depression by this weekend.

Located a few hundred miles south of the Cabo Verde Islands, forecasts show the storm to move to the west-northwest in the coming days.

Conditions are right for the storm to pickup strength as it moves through the Atlantic.

Experts say the system has 30-percent chance of development in the next 48 hours, while increasing to 80-percent over the next five days, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Hurricane Florence isn’t expected to impact the United States.

However, Tropical Storm Gordon is expected to strengthen to a strong tropical storm by landfall when it hits near the end of Florida’s panhandle, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana.
