MIAMI (AP) -- A new tropical depression has formed over the Atlantic behind Tropical Storm Ana and both are expected to slowly strengthen over the next couple of days.

The National Hurricane Center said Saturday that the third depression of the Atlantic season had maximum sustained winds of 35 mph and could soon become a tropical storm with winds of at least 39 mph.

Tropical Storm Ana, the first named storm of the Atlantic season, had winds of near 40 mph at 11 a.m. EDT. The Hurricane Center says residents in the Leeward Islands, Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico should monitor the Ana's progress.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Guillermo is still swirling in the open Pacific as a Category 3 storm with winds were near 115 mph. Guillermo is expected to weaken as it heads over cooler waters.
