HOLT, Fla., July 22, 2019—The tropical low over the Bahamas has been designated Tropical Depression Three by the National Hurricane Center.
It’s located over the western Atlantic Ocean about 120 miles southeast of West Palm Beach, Fla.
Moving northwest near 13 mph, the system is expected to turn toward the north-northwest overnight followed by a turn toward the north and north-northeast Tuesday.
The center of the depression should remain just offshore of Florida’s east coast during the next day or so, according to the NHC.
Maximum sustained winds are near 30 mph with higher gusts.
Although the NHC is giving this system a 60 percent chance of slight further development, no significant increase in strength is anticipated and the depression is forecast to dissipate by Wednesday as it’s absorbed by a front near the U.S. east coast.
