BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The latest data by the National Hurricane Center shows a tropical depression has formed around 1,000 miles east from the Lesser Antiles on Tuesday.
The tropical system would be named Tropical Storm Josephine if it continues to progress into a Tropical Storm..
Last check by NHC shows the Tropical Depression is carrying 35 mph max sustained winds and moving to north-northwest at 16 mph.
For a tropical system to become a Tropical Storm, winds must carry at least 39 mph max sustained winds.
Forecasters are projecting the Tropical Depression to become a Tropical Storm by late Wednesday night into early Thursday morning.
However, National Hurricane Center has cautioned expectations for Tropical Storm Josephine due to the system set to enter unfavorable conditions by the end of the week in the Atlantic, which are not ideal for tropical weather systems to develop significantly.
