Tropical Storm Edouard has formed in the far eastern Atlantic and is expected to remain out to sea.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said late Thursday that the fifth named tropical storm of the Atlantic hurricane season had sustained winds of 40 mph (65 kph) and was centered 1,020 miles (1,645 kms) west of the Cape Verde Islands.

The storm was moving northwest about 13 mph (20 kph).

No coastal warnings or watches are in effect. Edouard is forecast to stay over the open waters of the north central Atlantic.
