Tropical Storm Gert started in the east central Atlantic off the west African Coast as a tropical wave over a week ago. The storm became a Tropical Depression while it passed just northeast of the Bahamas and was named by the National Hurricane Center today as it reached Tropical Storm intensity. This storm will be moved north and then northeast back into the central Atlantic by a low pressure area and trailing cold front exiting the southeastern US coast. Unless this storm makes an unexpected turn to the west, this will be our only unofficial advisory on Named Storm Gert. For official updates, please use the NHC web link below:
