Miami-- Tropical Storm Gabrielle has re-formed in the Atlantic and is approaching Bermuda.

The storm's maximum sustained winds early Tuesday are near 40 mph (65 kph) with some strengthening forecast over the next two days.

A tropical storm warning has been issued for Bermuda, where Gabrielle is expected to bring a storm surge of 2 to 3 feet above normal tide levels. The U.S. National Hurricane Center says the storm is expected to pass over or near Bermuda by Wednesday morning.

The tropical storm is centered about 165 miles south of Bermuda and is moving north near 14 mph.

Farther east over the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Humberto's maximum sustained winds have increased to near 65 mph and the storm is expected to become a hurricane later in the day.

At 5 a.m. EST, the center of the storm was about 150 miles west of the southernmost Cape Verde Islands, reports CBS Miami.

The National Hurricane Center forecasts that Humberto will take a turn to the northwest and slow a bit on Tuesday.

The tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 80 miles from the center of Humberto.
