Tropical Depression #2 has formed in the central Atlantic Ocean. It is forecast to dissipate as it approaches the Caribbean Sea. / National Hurricane Center

A tropical depression continues to spin in the Atlantic Ocean, the National Hurricane Center reports.

As of 5 p.m. ET Tuesday, the depression had maximum sustained winds of 35 mph. It was moving to the west at 18 mph and was located about 800 miles east of the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean.

If the system's winds reach 39 mph, it would become Tropical Storm Bertha. However, the hurricane center predicts that "the depression is forecast to degenerate into a trough of low pressure in two to three days."

It remains no threat to any land areas.

It's the season's second tropical system, following Hurricane Arthur, which hit North Carolina earlier in July.
