Tropical Depression 2 forms in Atlantic Ocean, but don't fret


The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories for Tropical Depression Two which formed this morning in the Atlantic Ocean. The forecast now places Tropical Depression Two, which could form Tropical Storm Beryl, about 1,385 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles.

2, with sustained winds of 35 miles per hour, is moving west-northwest in the central Atlantic between the Cabo Verde Islands and the Lesser Antilles.

If that happens, the system would become the second named storm of the hurricane season, taking the name Beryl. "In fact, this system will probably lose its designation in about three days - before it even reaches the Lesser Antilles", the publication reported on Thursday, July 5.

The NHC said satellites indicate a small area of low pressure and a tropical wave between the Cabo Verde Islands and the Lesser Antilles.

If the disturbance becomes better organized during the next few days, it could generate some rough surf along the Jersey Shore, Staarmann said. As Beryl approaches the Lesser Antilles by this weekend, it should feel the influence of the shear over the eastern Caribbean and it is possible weakening will occur.

The system poses no threat to Bermuda: current predictions say it will be about 1,300m to our south-south east as of Sunday morning, eastward of Dominica in the Leeward Islands.

The next names on the list are Beryl then Chris.

At 1100 AM AST (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Two was located near latitude 10.2 North, longitude 41.4 West.
