The second and third tropical systems of the 2018 Hurricane season have formed in the Atlantic, and one could bring showers and storms to the area over the weekend.

The depression is located about 1,385 miles (2,230 km) east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles and is packing maximum sustained winds of 35 mph (55 km/h), the Miami-based weather agency said.

The storm is forecast to strengthen in coming days and could become a tropical storm Saturday night or Sunday, the hurricane center said Saturday morning. Upper-level winds are expected to become less conducive for development by this weekend when the system approaches the Lesser Antilles.

Two powerful storms threaten to turn into tropical cyclons in the Atlantic as hurricane season seems to have started hitting the Caribbean east coast this summer. It is expected to weaken and dissipate early next week.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 65 miles per hour with higher gusts.

- Hurricane season is getting a major makeover, as some forecasters are now calling for fewer storms.

"Due to its very small size, there is greater-than-usual uncertainty in the analysis of Beryl's current intensity, and confidence in the official intensity forecast is also lower than normal", the NHC said.

The National Hurricane Center in Florida is monitoring two tropical disturbances. The depression is moving toward the west near 16 miles per hour (26 km/h).

The five-day tropical weather outlook issued Wednesday by the National Hurricane Center shows activity in the central Atlantic and to the north of the territory.

While tropical storms can develop any time from February through December, July storms are somewhat unusual, according to the NHC. From 1950 through 2017, the average number of named storms has been 11 (though from 1981-2010, the average has been 12).
