Tropical Depression 10 has formed in the central tropical Atlantic and could become a Tropical Storm later Tuesday.

Chief Meteorologist Denis Phillips said while TD-10 is worth watching, it's not a system Floridians will need to worry about just yet.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect but the National Hurricane Center says interests in the Northern Leeward Islands should monitor the progress of this system.

About the storm:

Maximum Sustained Winds: 35 mph
Movement: WNW at 12 mph
Location: About 1165 miles ESE of the Leeward Islands.
