MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Looks like we’re starting the new work week with a new storm to keep tabs on in the Atlantic.

A tropical depression in the far western part of the ocean has strengthened into Tropical Storm Ophelia.

At 11 a.m, the center of system was located about 860 miles west-southwest of the Azores.

The system was moving to the north-northeast at 5 mph with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph with higher gusts. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles from the center.

A motion toward the east-northeast and east is forecast to occur later tonight, followed by a turn toward the east-southeast on Tuesday. Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.
