New Depression Joins Gil in the Pacific

Behind Tropical Storm Gil, a new tropical depression has formed in the eastern Pacific.

For the time being, Tropical Depression 8-E is far away from any land, just as Gil was when it formed earlier this week.

The depression is currently expected to strengthen to a tropical storm, becoming Henriette, sometime Sunday.

While Gil is expected to track to the south of Hawaii over the next several, Tropical Depression 8-E likely will take a different path.

The new storm currently looks to take a more northerly path early in the week. However, by moving into cooler waters, the storm will weaken by the middle of the week.

Stay tuned with meteorologists for the latest details on the tropical development of both Gil and 8-E
