The eighth tropical depression of the season has formed in the Atlantic Ocean. The storm was located about 600 miles east-southeast of Bermuda late Wednesday afternoon. The system is moving slowly north but should head to the northeast and out to the open Atlantic over the next few days. Tropical Depression Eight may become a tropical storm or hurricane as it moves away from the United States later in the week. It will not have any impact on the weather in eastern Carolina.
