BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - As of 10am Sunday, the National Hurricane Center has officially named Tropical Storm Julian in the Atlantic Ocean. As of the update, this system was upgraded from Tropical Depression Eleven.

There are no coastal watches or warnings issued for Julian, as the system is expected to remain over the open waters of the Atlantic. While the tropical storm is expected to strengthen over the next 24 to 36 hours, the fast movement and eventual placement over cooler waters is expected to weaken the system by mid-week.

Tropical Depression Ten is currently in the Southern Atlantic Ocean, forecast to potentially become Tropical Storm Kate Monday.
