Tropical Depression Ten Forms in the Gulf of Mexico
10:00 AM EDT - 19 September 1999
TD#10. It should be slow to develop any further. However, the impact does rely on the intensity of the system at landfall. If it remains fairly weak, as I expect it (but you never know sometimes with Gulf Storms) Models suggest it to move slowly towards the northeast gulf, and primarily be a rain producer. Some slower than others. Yet the NOGAPS actually drifts it southwestward for a bit.
We'll be watching it. Tropical Storm Watches may be thrown up later today for some parts of the coast.
