"The depression is moving toward the west near 26 km/h," the U.S. National Hurricane Center says. "This general motion is expected to continue during the next couple of days."

Some weakening is expected by Wednesday night and the depression is forecast to degenerate into a trough of low pressure in two to three days, the NHC says.

The depression is currently centred about 1,600 km east of the Lesser Antilles.

There are currently no coastal watches or warnings in effect.
