MIAMI — A tropical depression in the Atlantic is expected to weaken by the weekend.

The depression’s maximum sustained winds Thursday morning are near 35 mph. The U.S. National Hurricane Center says some weakening is expected and the depression could degenerate to a remnant low pressure area by Saturday.

The depression is centered about 1,070 miles east of the Lesser Antilles and is moving northwest near 6 mph.

It’s expected to turn toward the west-northwest by early Saturday.

The depression does not currently pose a threat to any land.
