Tropical Depression develops in the Atlantic

One of two storms the Weather Authority is monitoring in the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean was upgraded Thursday morning to Tropical Depression Two by the National Hurricane Center.

According to the National Hurricane Center, the system had maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour and was moving west at 16 miles per hour.

Some increase in showers and gusty winds are expected in the Lesser Antilles this weekend.

No watches or warnings have been issued.

If that happens, the system would become the second named storm of the hurricane season, taking the name Beryl. This system appears to be less organized, the center said, and the chances for a tropical depression to form are diminishing. "The tropical and subtropical Atlantic is now much colder than normal, and the odds of a weak El Niño developing in the next several months have increased". It is forecast to become a tropical storm by sometime Friday.

A tropical wave heading for the Caribbean is now a tropical depression and is headed for the Lesser Antilles.

As of 7 a.m., the disturbance was a few hundred miles south of Bermuda and was disorganized. It will interact with a frontal system on Sunday, limiting additional development.

Tropical Depression Two has formed between west Africa and the Lesser Antilles, but is unlikely to survive as a tropical cyclone by the time it reaches the Lesser Antilles this weekend. It's projected to move west and north, between Bermuda and the east coast of the United States.

Both systems are expected to strengthen as we enter into the second full month of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season.
