(WXIA) --Tropical depression number 2 has dissipated into a tropical wave. It no longer has characteristics of a tropical depression. The remnant low still has 35mph winds and is moving toward the west at 18mph. It is encountering wind shear and dry air as it moves to the west. It will continue to weaken as it gets closer to the Lesser Antilles.

The National Hurricane Center issued the last advisory on the system just before noon Wednesday. We will continue to watch the remnants of this system as it moves to the west. We will also watch the rest of the Atlantic Basin for any additional tropical development.
