Tropical Depression Two forms over central Atlantic

We now have our second tropical depression of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season. Tropical Depression Two formed Thursday morning west of the Cabo Verde Islands. The storm will continue to move west and there is a chance that it could strengthen into Tropical Storm Beryl by Friday or sometime this weekend. 

Afterward. upper-level winds will become unfavorable for strengthening. This combined with several other factors such as dry air and cooler than average water temps will lead to the system eventually degenerating into a trough of low pressure sometime next week as it approaches the Lesser Antilles. The system will remain weak as it moves westward. There is NO threat to Florida.
