Tropical Depression Eight formed in the eastern tropical Atlantic Tuesday and soon strengthened into Tropical Storm Gabrielle, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Tropical Storm Gabrielle has winds of up to 40 mph and is moving northwest at about 10 mph.

With no coastal watches or warnings, Tropical Storm Gabrielle should be no threat to the United States this week, let alone Florida.
