July 22, 2005952Views

Current Location: 12.2N, 46.4W

Geographic Reference: 1025 miles east of the Lesser
Antilles

 Forecast

Tropical Depression Two remains poorly
organized with no evidence of any strengthening. The associated squalls
diminished some during the evening hours but are expected to increase during
the morning hours. There is a chance it could briefly attain tropical storm
strength for a few hours, before encountering increasingly hostile conditions,
and weakening. By the time it reaches the Lesser Antilles late Thursday
afternoon or evening, it will be either a depression or a remnant low. It will
likely devolve into an open wave over the eastern Caribbean on Friday. Presently the Depression poses no threat to the Virgin Islands.

The
chances of this depression reaching the Gulf of Mexico remain very low.

Expected Impacts Onshore

Lesser Antilles north of 13N latitude: Squalls with wind gusts up to
45 mph are likely on Thursday.

Expected Impacts Offshore

Offshore Trinidad: No significant impacts are
expected.

 

Next Advisory will be 5PM unless conditions change.
