MIAMI (AP) -- Forecasters say a tropical depression is expected to bring at least three to five inches of rain to parts of Guatemala, Belize, Honduras and southern Mexico.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said the Atlantic season's second tropical depression formed Monday off Belize and was moving early Tuesday over parts of Belize and northern Guatemala. At 5 a.m. EDT Tuesday, it was about 30 miles (50 kms) east-northeast of Tikal, Guatemala.

The depression has maximum sustained winds of 30 mph (45 kph) and is traveling west-northwest at 8 mph (13 kilometers per hour). The center said the depression, once it crosses land in southern Mexico, could strengthen Wednesday nearing Mexico's Bay of Campeche.

Forecasters say heavy rains could cause flash flooding, but no coastal watches or warnings were issued.
