Tropical Depression 2 develops as hurricane season begins

(CMR) Because the Atlantic Hurricane Season starts, Tropical Depression 2 has developed within the Gulf of Mexico and is anticipated to travel southward in less favorable conditions for development.

Based on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, at 4 PM CDT, the middle of Tropical Depression Two was situated near latitude 28.0 North and longitude 86.6 West. The depression is moving toward the west-northwest near 2 mph (4 km/h). A motion to the south is anticipated to start by Friday with steadily increasing forward speed.

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. Some modest intensification is forecast, and the depression could change into a tropical storm tonight or tomorrow. Nonetheless, the system should begin to weaken by Friday night and degenerate right into a remnant low by Saturday.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1007 mb (29.74 inches). The NOAA  reported sustained winds of 36 mph (57 km/h) with a gust of 40 mph (65 km/h).

Meantime, cloudiness and scattered showers are expected to proceed for the following 24 to 36 hours within the Cayman Islands on account of an interaction between the weak pressure gradient on the surface and an upper-level trough near western Honduras. Radar images show scattered showers in and across the Cayman area drifting towards the northeast.
