MIAMI, USA -- The Antigua and Barbuda Meteorological Services issued an advisory on Thursday in relation to a tropical depression that, while on the present forecast track, will likely pass a safe distance to the north of the Caribbean on Sunday, any shift to the left of the forecast track could result in the system affecting Antigua and Barbuda and the rest of the northeast Caribbean.

According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami, at 5:00 pm EDT on Thursday, the centre of Tropical Depression Four was located about 1,110 miles (1,785 km) east of the Lesser Antilles moving toward the west near 23 mph (37 km/h). A westward to west-northwestward motion at a similar forward speed is expected through Saturday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 30 mph (45 km/h) with higher gusts. Little change in strength is forecast during the next 48 hours. The depression is expected to degenerate to a remnant low by Friday night, but it could also open up into a tropical wave at any time.
