The 27th tropical depression of the Atlantic storm season has formed, and may become Tropical Storm Gamma on Monday.

Gamma would be the 24th named storm of the Atlantic storm season. It is not expected to threaten the United States.

The depression was 150 miles west of St. Lucia early Monday morning. It was expected to be south of Jamaica by the end of this week, over Caribbean waters still warm enough to strengthen it into a major hurricane.

It could head northwest, then west across the Caribbean toward Central America. Parts of Central America were badly damaged by Hurricane Stan earlier this season.
