The tropical system that formed in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa early this week has strengthened into a tropical depression, but isn't expected to get much stronger.
The storm officially developed into Tropical Depression Four on Wednesday around 11 p.m., according to the National Hurricane Center.
The system still sat way out in the Atlantic as of Thursday morning, moving west-northwest around 17 mph with sustained winds reaching 30 mph, forecasters said.
The system is expected to continue in that direction, forecasters said, and increase slightly in speed over the next couple of days.
Under current conditions, the depression is not expected to develop into Tropical Storm Don, possibly fizzling out over the Atlantic or turning toward Bermuda, forecasters said.
