Tropical Depression 13 has formed in the Atlantic and Florida is in the cone.

“There’s going to be a lot of changes with this. There’s uncertainty in this system,” News 6 Chief Meteorologist Tom Sorrells said.

As of 11 p.m. Wednesday night the tropical depression was 1,035 miles east-southeast of the Northern Leeward Islands with maximum sustained winds of 35 mph.

The tropical depression is expected to be the next named storm of the season, according to Sorrells.

The storm would be named Tropical Storm Laura.

The depression was moving west-northwest at 20 mph.

A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for Saba and St. Eustatius.

The National Weather Service said the depression is expected to produce one to three inches of rain with isolated maximum totals of five inches of rain through Friday night over the northern Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico.
