Earlier: Tropical Storm Gabrielle formed and fizzled last week, but a new tropical cyclone in the Atlantic Ocean has taken shape.
Tropical Storm Humberto, which has maximum wind speeds of roughly 40 miles per hour, is tracking west toward the U.S., according to an 8 a.m. update from the National Weather Service. The storm, which is less than 4,000 miles away from the coast of Florida, is slated to become a hurricane by 2 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11.
The NWS is also monitoring the remnants of Tropical Storm Gabrielle, which has a 20% probability of becoming a tropical cyclone. That elongated band of low pressure is located about 500 miles south of Bermuda.
