(Reuters) - Tropical Depression Twenty-six is expected to strengthen into a tropical storm on Monday and could strengthen further into a hurricane the next day, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.
The system is located about 75 miles (125 km) south south-west of Kingston, Jamaica, packing maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour (55 km/h), the Miami-based weather forecaster said on Sunday.
“The system is forecast to move into the southeastern Gulf of Mexico Tuesday night or early Wednesday,” the NHC added.
