MIAMI (CBSMiami) – As Tropical Storm Julia continues to drench the northern end of the state and southern Georgia, forecasters at the National Hurricane Center are also keeping their eye on a new tropical depression in the far eastern Atlantic.

At 11 a.m., the center of Tropical Depression #12 was about 95 miles northwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. The system was moving to the west-northwest at 14 mph with maximum sustained winds of 35 mph with some higher gusts.

A gradual turn toward the west is expected during the next couple of days. On the forecast track, the center of the depression should move through the western islands of Cabo Verde Wednesday afternoon and then move away from them.

Slight strengthening is expected during the next 24 hours, and the depression could become a tropical storm by Wednesday night. After that time, some weakening could occur as it encounters unfavorable upper-level winds.

There are no watches or warnings in effect for this storm.
