Tropical Depression Two fades into a calm Atlantic

Tropical Depression Two, you had a nice run, but you're no Bertha.

The National Hurricane Center has issued its last advisory for the tropical depression as it fizzles in the Atlantic.

This storm had a nice three-day run. It first developed into a depression on Monday this week.

Forecasters initially thought this storm would quickly fizzle into nothing since it was running into marginally warm waters and a large area of high pressure, two storm killers.

The remnants of this storm are still headed for the Lesser Antilles at a clip of about 25 mph. They should arrive this evening, almost going unnoticed.

Maximum sustained wind gusts are near 35 mph, so worst case scenario for the islands will be a slightly stronger than average thunderstorm with heavy rains rolling through.

If you're looking for the next tropical storm, to be named Bertha, then you're going to be waiting a while. As of right now, nothing is brewing in the Atlantic, but the season is still young.
