Tropical Depression One was a tropical depression that did not reach tropical storm status during the 1990 Atlantic hurricane season. The depression formed early, namely on May 25, approximately a week before the official start of the Atlantic hurricane season. The cyclone developed in the western Carribean Sea to the south of western Cuba. The cyclone moved northward, made landfall along western Cuba, and then dissipated on May 27 as it was approaching the extreme southwestern Florida Peninsula.
The depression caused no damage and no deaths.

The origins of the depression are unclear, but could've been associated with a westward-moving tropical wave. In any case, an area of disturbed weather over the western Carribean Sea during the latter part of May eventually organized into Tropical Depression One on May 25 while located south of western Cuba. After forming, the cyclone moved northward with little change in strength, making landfall along western Cuba. On May 27, as the cyclone was approaching the southwestern Florida coast, it dissipated.
