Tropical Storm Gert is expected to be about midway between Bermuda and North Carolina on Monday and Tuesday.

Tropical Storm Gert has formed in the Atlantic, becoming the seventh named storm of the 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season.

There are now no watches or warnings in effect. It is now moving to the west-northwest at around 10 to 15 miles per hour and is expected to meet up with a larger area of low pressure southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands in the next few days.

The storm is expected to bring a higher risk of rip currents to Florida's east coast, according to Jessie Smith, meteorologist with the National Weather Service. It is expected to remain a tropical storm through the first half of next week. The hurricane center's forecast said Jova would continue to weaken and likely dissipate Sunday.

However, a turn to the north and eventually northeast is forecast to begin tonight, which should steer the storm away from the U.S.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs through November 30.

At the moment, it appears this alleyway will set up far enough east that the US would avoid any direct impacts, but increased surf along the East Coast is possible.
