The tropical depression is expected to dissipate in the Atlantic

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – A tropical depression over the Atlantic is expected to weaken and fizzle out in the coming days, according to the National Hurricane Center.

As of 5 a.m. Wednesday, Tropical Depression 12 was about 480 miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands with maximum sustained winds near 35 mph, the NHC said in its 5 a.m. advisory.

The system moved northwest with little change in strength and is likely to continue that northwest migration through Thursday, the center added.

“Slight change in strength is forecast and the system is expected to resolve in a few days,” the advisory said.

Meteorologists are also monitoring a broad low-pressure area with showers and thunderstorms east of the Windward Islands.

The system, which formed Tuesday afternoon, has a high chance of developing into a tropical depression if it moves west across open waters through these islands and into the Caribbean Sea and achieves favorable conditions for development, the said Center.

According to the NHC, there is an intermediate 60% chance of becoming a tropical depression in the next two days and a high 80% chance of becoming one in the next five days.

Regardless of development, heavy rains with localized flooding are expected over the next few days over parts of the Windward Islands, northern parts of South America and the ABC Islands.

The next named storm of the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season is Julia. The tropical depression is expected to dissipate in the Atlantic
