Tropical Depression Two forms in Atlantic

Tropical Depression Two was moving west toward the lesser Antilles early Tuesday. But the storm wasn't expected to strengthen much, and in fact should dissipate by Thursday.

"The official forecast does not show it becoming a tropical storm," Bay News 9 Meteorologist Juli Marquez said.

Marquez said wind shear and dry air would cut through the storm as it approaches land.

"Those are two factors that would be working against the tropical depression getting stronger," Marquez said.

The depression was located about 1,000 miles west of the Easter Caribbean islands as of 5 a.m., with sustained winds of 35 miles per hour. It was moving about 16 miles per hour. To reach tropical storm strength, the depression would need sustained winds of 39 miles per hour or above.

No coastal watches or warnings were in effect Tuesday morning, but islanders in the Antilles were warned to monitor the system's progress.
