Tropical Depression 5 is moving just north of Bermuda bringing rain and windy conditions to the area.

The tropical depression is now located off the coast of the Western Atlantic where it is moving in a east-northeast direction at 17 miles per hour.

NOAA's National Hurricane Center issued a Tropical Weather Outlook at 2:00 p.m.

That disturbance was a low within a larger area of low pressure off the northern Gulf Coast as of Sunday afternoon.

According to NHC forecasters, the system could develop into a tropical storm during the day on Sunday or into the night before becoming a post-tropical system on Monday. The threat for storms will decrease this evening into tonight.

If Tropical Depression Five strengthens into a tropical storm it might be named Edouard.

However, it could cross over Florida and into the western Atlantic near the Carolinas, where it has a better chance of development.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs through November 30.

This forecast is well above the averages of 12 named tropical storms, six hurricanes, and three major hurricanes during the season. This system will become extra tropical over the next several days as it continues to move out in open water.

This is not the only system in the Atlantic basin that has the potential to show into a tropical system this week.

There have been three tropical storms so far this hurricane season, two of which made landfall in the U.S. "If it gets named, it'll be the earliest fifth Atlantic named storm formation on record, said Phil Klotzbach a research scientist at Colorado State University".
