- The season's second tropical depression has formed way out in the Atlantic, but forecasters say it won't impact the USA much - if at all. Some strengthening is possible, and the depression could become a tropical storm later today or on Friday.
Beryl was located between the Cabo Verde Islands and the Lesser Antilles.
Model forecast if the tropical depression.
Another system, dubbed Invest 96L, now centered southwest of Bermuda has a medium chance of developing into a tropical depression by the end of this week, according to the NHC.
If it becomes a tropical storm, it will be named Beryl. "Right now it's just a very disorganized cluster of thunderstorms over the water", said Alex Staarmann, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service's regional forecast office in New Jersey.
A tropical wave heading for the Caribbean is now a tropical depression and is headed for the Lesser Antilles.

Formation chance through 48 hours...low...30 percent. A second system a few hundred miles southwest of Bermuda remained disorganized Thursday morning, but forecasters said it could strengthen as it moves east, away from the US coast. "A fast westward to west northwestward motion is expected through the weekend", the National Hurricane Center said. The system is then forecast to interact with a frontal system on Sunday, which would limit any additional development.
Tropical Depression Two had winds of 35 miles per hour.
