As of 5pm Tuesday, the National Hurricane Center says Tropical Depression Two continues to move quickly westward toward the Lesser Antilles.
The 5pm advisory from the NHC has Tropical Depression #2 with winds of 35 mph, pressure is 1012 mb and is moving West at 18 mph. The storm is located about 800 miles East of the Lesser Antilles.
As the system continues to track to the west it will begin to encounter some very dry air, which limits the storm from strengthening. The forecast keeps the storm as a Tropical Depression with winds at only 35 mph for the next two days. By Thursday, the storm is forecast to weaken to a remnant area of low pressure. As this remnant low moves through the Caribbean it will still produce heavy rainfall.
