TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Tropical Depression Two formed mere hours after the official start of the 2023 Atlantic hurricane season, according to the National Weather Service.

In its latest forecast, NHC said Tropical Depression Two, formerly 92L, is moving south at 3 mph with maximum sustained winds of about 35 mph.

The system is expected to move slightly faster over the next few days.

The NHC said the depression could become a tropical storm by Friday morning. It will then weaken and is forecast to degenerate to a remnant low on Saturday.

The impacts to the Tampa Bay area remain the same even with the potential for the system to organize.

“Heavy downpours form this afternoon and Friday afternoon, and some areas may have brief street flooding,” said Max Defender 8 Meteorologist Leigh Spann.

Widespread rainfall totals could reach 1-3 inches during the next few days with isolated higher amounts up to six inches. If the system develops into the first tropical storm of the season, it will be named Arlene.
