Tropical Storm Jerry named in Atlantic

Tropical Storm Jerry became the season's tenth named storm Monday afternoon.

By Tuesday morning, the National Hurricane Center said the storm was "nearly stationary," and located in the central Atlantic.

The storm was expected to move gradually toward the north or northwest Tuesday, but was not anticipated to impact land at all. Its winds had already weakened by Tuesday morning, but forecasters expected it to fluctuate throughout the day.

Meanwhile, forecasters were tracking a low pressure system 120 miles east of the Nicaragua-Honduras border. The system was moving east and was expected to develop. Forecasters Tuesday morning gave it a 30 percent chance of tropical cyclone development over the following 48 hours.

The storm was expected to move into the northwestern Caribbean Sea and southern Gulf of Mexico over the next five days and bring heavy wind and rain to portions of Cuba and Jamaica through Wednesday
