Tropical depression forms in eastern Atlantic, forecast to strengthen

The 12th tropical depression of the 2011 Atlantic Hurricane season formed early Monday in the eastern Atlantic and could reach tropical storm strength later in the day, according to the National Hurricane Center.

It would be called Katia.

The tropical depression formed about 400 miles south-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands off the coast of Africa and was moving west about 15 miles per hour, according to the NHC. It had maximum sustained winds of about 35 mph.

Hurricane forecasters predict the storm will take a turn west-northwest and could strengthen into a tropical storm later in the day.
