DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK

----------------------

At 500 AM AST (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Five was located near latitude 33.3 North, longitude 64.9 West. The depression is moving toward the northeast near 20 mph (31 km/h) and

this general motion with some increase in forward speed is expected for the next couple of days. On the forecast track, the center of the depression will move away from Bermuda this morning.

 

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. Little change in strength is forecast during the next 48 hours. The depression could become a tropical storm today.
