MIAMI — The eighth tropical depression of the current Atlantic hurricane season has become Tropical Storm “Gert”, but it is not expected to impact US coasts nor the Yucatan Peninsula, the US National Hurricane Center (NHC) reported.

Gert, which developed as a depression on the night of Saturday August 12, has sustained maximum winds of 65 kilometers per hour (40 m / h) and maintains its location east of the Florida coast, in a path that according to meteorologists will keep it away from the mainland US.

According to the NHC’s evening bulletin, the storm moves at 17 kilometers per hour (10 m / h) and with a northeasterly direction, a general movement that has continued throughout the day and then has taken a turn towards the North the night of Sunday August 13.

The Miami-based weather center predicted a “slow strengthening” of this cyclone between Monday and Tuesday.

The National Meteorological Service (SMN) predicted that today, Monday August 14, Tropical Wave 25 will continue to be associated with a cyclone-instability zone south of Jalisco and Colima, while Tropical 26 will extend over the southeast of the country.

Also a low pressure channel in the northwest and west of the national territory will maintain the wind gusts that can surpass the 60 kilometers per hour, with possible temperatures of more than 40 degrees Celsius in the north of the country.

The Yucatan Peninsula will maintain partly cloudy skies with an 80 percent chance of strong point storms in Campeche and rainfall intervals in the rest of the region.
