Tropical Depression 21 forms in Caribbean as Hurricane Tammy treks toward open Atlantic

The National Hurricane Center continues to track two disturbances – Hurricane Tammy trekking toward the open Atlantic and a newly-formed tropical depression in the Caribbean. 

Hurricane Tammy is located about 695 miles south of Bermuda, according to the NHC. Early Monday evening, the Category 1 hurricane had maximum sustained winds of 75 mph and is moving toward the northwest at about 7 mph and is expected to turn to the north or north-northeast on Monday and into Tuesday. Tammy could strengthen slightly during the next few days, forecasters said. 

A second disturbance in the Caribbean near Panama and Costa Rica has become Tropical Depression 21. The depression is moving toward the west near 5 mph with a west-to-west-northwest motion expected until it dissipates. Maximum sustained winds are near 30 mph with higher gusts. No strengthening is expected

Neither storm is expected to bring impacts to the U.S. or Florida at this time.
