Tropical Depression 2 Expected to Weaken



    Weather Forecast -- 5 AM -- July 22, 2014 (Published Tuesday, July 22, 2014)

    The National Hurricane Center said the second tropical depression of the 2014 Atlantic Hurricane Season will likely dissipate in the next few days.

    As of 11 a.m. Tuesday, the system was located about 910 miles east of the Lesser Antilles and had maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour. The tropical system was moving to the west at 17 miles per hour.

    There were no hazards affecting land and there were no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

    Forecasters with the National Hurricane Center said the environment the system developed in is “marginal, at best, for development during the next couple of days.” The tropical cyclone is expected to move into drier air and marginal sea surface temperatures over the next few days.

    The system is expected to stay on a west-northwestward track and show an increase in forward speed. The tropical cyclone should weaken to a remnant low by Thursday.
