Tropical Depression Two forms of the current hurricane season

An area of ​​low pressure, which continued to move slowly over the northeastern Gulf of Mexico, has shown signs of better organization this Thursday, with persistence of areas of heavy rain in the vicinity of its center, reported the Center for Forecasts of the Institute of Meteorology.

During the afternoon, a reconnaissance aircraft investigated this system and determined that it has become a tropical depression.

In its tropical cyclone warning No. 1, referring to tropical depression Two, the Forecast Center specifies that at 5 pm its center was located at 28.0 degrees north latitude and 86.6 degrees west longitude, about 615 kilometers to the northeast of Key West, United States, and 700 kilometers north-northwest of Cape San Antonio, Pinar del Río.

This system has maximum sustained winds of 55 kilometers per hour, with higher gusts, and a central pressure of 1,007 hectopascals (hPa) and drifts to the west-northwest at only four kilometers per hour.

In the next 12 to 24 hours, it will maintain little movement, beginning to move slowly to the south. The environmental conditions are not entirely conducive to its development, so although there is a probability that it could slightly gain intensity and reach the category of tropical storm during the next morning, this process will be short and it can weaken in less than 24 hours. .

Due to its proximity and future trajectory, although it is a disorganized, weak and short-lived system, it is recommended to pay attention to the information issued about it.

The next tropical cyclone advisory for this system will be issued at 6 am this Friday.
