Tracking The Tropics 8-14-17 5PM

Tropical Storm Gert is strengthening and could become a hurricane Monday night or early Tuesday. The storm is moving north and will not be a threat to land other than a brief wind gusts and rougher surf from North Carolina through New England.

A tropical wave moving south of the Cape Verde Islands will be monitored for development over the next 5 days. At this point it is too early to tell of an exact track should it intensify.
