The second tropical depression of the season formed off the coast of North Carolina Tuesday, and forecasters say it could soon become a tropical storm.

National Hurricane Center (NHC) meteorologists had been watching that area of tropical disturbance near the North Carolina coast for several days. The disturbance strengthened early Tuesday to become Tropical Depression Two.

A tropical storm watch has been issued for coastal North Carolina from north of Cape Lookout to Currituck Beach Light. The depression is currently about 200 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras.

An NHC public advisory states that the depression is currently moving northward at 5 miles per hour and may take a turn toward the northwest later Tuesday and into Wednesday.

Tropical Depression Two's maximum sustained winds are currently at 35 miles per hour.
