The 13th tropical depression of the 2013 hurricane season has formed in the central Atlantic Ocean, but forecasters say it will have no impact on land.
The system has sustained winds of about 35 mph and is moving north-northeast. It is expected to take a more easterly course in the next two days.
While some strengthening is possible, forecasters think the system ultimately will encounter strong winds that will weaken it.
If it becomes a tropical storm, with winds of 39 mph or more, it would be named Lorenzo.
