Atlantic storm forms as another weakens

September 25, 2007|From the Associated Press

miami -- A tropical depression formed in the open Atlantic late Monday, while Tropical Storm Jerry weakened to a depression and then dissipated in cooler waters.

The 12th tropical depression of the season was expected to develop into Tropical Storm Karen sometime today, but should not threaten land over the next several days, said senior hurricane specialist James Franklin.

The depression was centered about 1,700 miles east of the Southern Windward Islands on Monday night, with top sustained winds near 35 mph, the National Hurricane Center said. It was moving about 16 mph toward the west-northwest and was expected to continue this general motion over the next 24 hours.

Jerry, which formed Sunday, broke up Monday night. Forecasters expected its remnants to be absorbed by a larger nontropical low-pressure system.
