MIAMI -- A tropical depression formed south of Cuba Saturday amid forecasts the system would become a named tropical storm later this weekend and possibly a hurricane within days.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Tropical Depression 28 emerged about 255 miles south-southeast of the western tip of Cuba.

By Saturday evening, the storm had top sustained winds of 30 mph and was moving slowly toward the north-northwest.

Forecasters say the depression is expected to gradually strengthen into a tropical storm sometime Sunday.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Epsilon was located about 615 miles northeast of Bermuda on Saturday afternoon.

Epsilon had maximum sustained winds of 80mph, making it a Category 1 hurricane.
