Tropical Depression Ten has formed in the central Atlantic Ocean and could approach the northern Leeward Islands as a hurricane late this week, the Weather Channel is reporting.
On its official website, the channel said the tropical depression is more than 1,100 miles east-southeast of the Leeward Islands and is tracking west-northwestward across the central tropical Atlantic.
It was predicted to become a tropical storm late Tuesday and be given the name Imelda.
The US National Hurricane Centre says it could become a hurricane by Friday.
The centre has advised that interests in the Northern Leeward Islands should monitor the progress of the system.
Hurricane Humberto meanwhile continues to strengthen at sea, bringing the threat of high winds and heavy rain to Bermuda, according to Fox News.
Humberto was located about 525 miles west of Bermuda with maximum sustained winds of 100 mph and was moving east-northeast at 8 mph.
The hurricane is now a Category 2 storm.
