Tropical Depression #2 developed in the far western Caribbean this morning, with a steady movement to the west.  Its peak wind speed is 35 mph as it makes its way toward the country of Belize, south of the Yucatan Peninsula.

Tropical Depression #2 poses no direct threat to the Big Bend region.

Elsewhere, a stretched-out area of moisture in the southern latitudes of the North Atlantic is not forecast to rapidly develop because of its current disorganization and swift upper-level winds nearby.

There are no other areas of interest in the tropical Atlantic basin at this time.
