Forecast

Tropical Depression Two continues to move
slightly north of due west. This motion is expected to continue due to strong
ridging north of the system. The remnants of Tropical Depression Two should
move through the Lesser Antilles in a little more than 36 hours.

The depression continues to slowly weaken.
It is possible that the circulation may have dissipated. Visible satellite
imagery does not indicate a well-defined circulation. Environmental conditions
are unfavourable for strengthening due to very dry air near the centre. Forecasters
expect the depression to continue to weaken to an open wave within the next 24
hours.

There
is no threat to the Gulf of Mexico.

Expected Impacts Onshore
