TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The hurricane season's 12th tropical depression has struggled to maintain its strength in the eastern Atlantic Wednesday.

Tropical Depression Twelve is located over 500 miles west of the Cape Verde Islands and is moving northwest at 13 mph.

Its highest winds are at 35 mph, based on data from the latest National Hurricane Center advisory.

A steady move to the northwest is anticipated through Thursday with limited intensification expected.

Nearby upper-level wind shear has caused the system to be very disorganized which will lead to weakening by the end of this week.

This storm has no risk of impacting the Big Bend and southern Georgia regions.
