The depression's maximum sustained winds early Tuesday were 35 mph.

Little change is strength is expected Tuesday, but the U.S. National Hurricane Center says some weakening is expected by Wednesday night. The depression is forecast to degenerate into a trough of low pressure in two to three days.

The depression is centered about 910 miles east of the Lesser Antilles and is moving west at about 17 mph.

Meanwhile, more humid air and the sea breezes will lead to afternoon storms across Central Florida on Tuesday afternoon.

"Most rain will begin to develop after 2 o'clock," Local 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.  "The risk for stronger storms will begin after 3 o'clock."

The coverage of rain will be 60 percent of the region.

"Heavy rain adding up to 3 inches or more will be possible," Bridges said.

Rain chances will be at 50 percent from Wednesday into the weekend.

Temperatures will be near normal -- in the low 90s -- through the weekend.
