MIAMI -- Tropical Storm Zeta formed Friday in the eastern Atlantic Ocean, another installment in a record-breaking hurricane season that officially ended last month.
Zeta, the 27th storm of the season, formed Friday about 1,000 miles south-southwest of the Azores islands, the National Hurricane Center reported. At noon EST, Zeta had maximum sustained winds of 50 mph and was moving northwest near 8 mph.
It was not likely to threaten land, hurricane center forecaster Martin Nelson said.
``We believe this will be simply a problem for maritime interests,'' Nelson said.
Although some strengthening was possible, Zeta was expected to begin weakening Saturday, forecasters said. Tropical storms develop when their winds exceed 39 mph.
