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.
