MIAMI, Florida (CNN) -- The seventh tropical depression of the Atlantic hurricane season formed Friday afternoon off the coast of Jacksonville, Florida, forecasters at the National Hurricane Center said.

At 5 p.m. EDT, the storm was 45 miles [72 kilometers] southeast of Brinswick, Georgia, and was moving north-northwest at 13 mph [21 kph]. Maximum sustained winds were 30 mph [48 kph], with higher gusts.

The center of the storm is poorly defined, and forecasters say little additional strengthening is likely. The storm formed from the remnants of the sixth tropical depression, which fell apart as it moved west through the Caribbean.

Forecasters expect tropical depression seven to spread locally heavy rain across coastal Georgia and South Carolina as it moves inland Friday night. It is expected to make landfall near Savannah, Georgia.
