Tropical Depression Two develops in the Atlantic

- Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami say two tropical depressions could form in the Atlantic Ocean before the end of the week.

As of 11 a.m., it was located about 1,385 east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles and moving west at 16 miles per hour. It was moving west at about 16 miles per hour.

Upper-level winds will become hostile well before the system approaches the Lesser Antilles this weekend.

The first National Hurricane Center advisories for Tropical Depression 2 will begin at 11 a.m.

On the forecast track, the center of Beryl will remain east of the Lesser Antilles through Sunday.

A second area of disturbed weather was located between the U.S. East Coast and Bermuda on Thursday. Anything more than that is considered a tropical storm.

"Some strengthening is possible, and the depression could become a tropical storm later today or on Friday", the NHC said Thursday.

Tropical waves are areas of low air pressure which move from east to west across the tropics, causing areas of cloudiness and thunderstorms.

The official forecast from the NHC has the storm moving west to west-northwest over the next five days.

"This system is much less organized and the potential for tropical depression development is even lower", News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.
