TAMPA (WFLA) — Tropical Storm Epsilon has formed over the Atlantic and is forecast to be at or near hurricane strength when it approached Bermuda later this week, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Epsilon formed over the Central Atlantic Monday morning. According to the NHC, it is too soon to determine the exact details of the storm’s tack and intensity.
The storm was named “Epsilon,” after the fifth letter in the Greek alphabet.
As of 11 a.m., the depression was stationary with little overall movement. A slow west-northwestward motion should begin Tuesday, NHC says. Maximum sustained winds are 40 mph.
There are no watches or warnings in effect.
