UPDATE: SUNDAY 9/23/18 11 AM EDT

Tropical Depression 11 has dissipated. Regeneration is unlikely due to high amounts of wind shear and dry air currently in the Caribbean. The final advisory has been issued by the NHC. 

UPDATE: SATURDAY 9/22/18 5 PM EDT

TD 11 has max winds at 30 mph, moving NW at 3 mph. The hostile environment surrounding TD 11 is expected to cause the storm to dissipate by Sunday.

UPDATE: FRIDAY 9/21/18 11 PM EDT

The active Atlantic hurricane season continues with the development of a new tropical depression on Friday night. Tropical Depression #11 has formed and will move northwestward toward the Windward Islands this weekend. The storm is surrounded by a significant amount of dry air from the Saharan Air Layer. Also, strong wind shear in the Caribbean will likely take its toll on the system and it should dissipate by early next week.
