Gaston Still A Tropical Storm, Expected To Become A Hurricane

Tropical Storm Gaston formed late last night in the Eastern Atlantic, and is packing winds of 50 mph as of 5 am Tuesday. Now about 550 miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands, Gaston is moving west-northwest at 20 mph and may strengthen to a hurricane late tonight or early Wednesday morning.

Fortunately, it does not look to threaten land at this time. We expect a general forward motion for the next day or two, before curving more toward the northwest once in the Central Atlantic.
