Tropical Depression 2 Moving Westward

It’s still too early in the game to know for certain if Tropical Depression 2 will impact the Virgin Islands, but meteorologist Jose Alamo at the National Weather Service in San Juan said Wednesday that it currently looks like it will pass northeast of the territory Monday morning.
"It’s continuing on its westerly track, but the models think it will turn west northwest," Alamo said.
Meteorologists still think the storm will become Tropical Storm Ana in the next day or two, Alamo said.
Tropical Depression 2 formed Monday.
While savvy residents are keeping a weather eye across the Atlantic to see what this storm will do, they should plan Thursday as a tropical wave moves through the area.
"And a few gusty winds, and there’s a small craft advisory issued for V.I. waters," Alamo said.
Another strong tropical wave sits behind Tropical Depression 2.
"Conditions are favorable for development," Alamo said.
As of the 5 p.m. Wednesday update from the National Hurricane Center, Tropical Depression 2 was centered 14.3 degrees north latitude and 35 degrees west longitude. Winds are just four miles below tropical storm strength at 35 mph, with the barometric pressure standing at 1006 millibars or 29.7 inches. It was moving west at 14 mph.
The depression was about 710 miles west of the Cape Verde Islands.
