The next name on the list is Gert if Eight becomes a tropical storm.
We have been watching a disturbance for the past week in the Atlantic Ocean. The system had sustained winds of 35 miles per hour with gusts up to 46 miles per hour late Saturday night.
A cold front along the East Coast should keep the depression away from the eastern seaboard.
"At this time, the more likely scenario is for the tropical system to stay offshore", AccuWeather meteorologist Dan Kottlowski said in a report.
Forecasters give the disturbance a 40 percent chance of developing into a tropical system during the next couple of days and a 60 percent chance of formation by the middle of next week.
The storm is expected to continue to track to the north-northwest today - and toward the U.S. East Coast.
A turn toward the north is forecast to occur Sunday night, followed by a turn to the north-northeast on Monday. As of Sunday morning the system was weak, but is expected to strengthen into a tropical storm by the end of the day.
Meanwhile, the NHC has started tracking a recently emerged low pressure area off the west coast of Africa with a slight, 20 percent probability of becoming the Atlantic's next tropical cyclone in the next five days.
