JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Tropical depression four formed in the Atlantic Ocean Wednesday night, but has since disenagrated into a remnant Low pressure system.

Tropical Depression Four is not expected to become a tropical storm, according to the NHC. 

Here is the latest update as of 5 p.m.:

 "Satellite data and surface observations indicate that the depression no longer has a closed  circulation, and the cyclone has degenerated into a tropical wave. Showers associated with the system have continued to diminish and remain disorganized.

Based on the lack of organization, this will be the last advisory on this system. The remnants of this cyclone will continue to move toward the west-northwest today, but environmental conditions are not favorable for regeneration.."

Early predictions for the tropical depression could mean bad weather anywhere between Antigua to Bermuda, Most likely the system will remain very weak, but chief meteorologist John Gaughan sees a "window" of opportunity for the depression to become "Don" on Friday.

Longer term, indications are the weak system may reach just off the Florida Coast in about 8-9 days.

The Weather Authority will keep you updated as the tropical depression develops and we get a better idea of its final destination.
