Tropical Depression Forming in Gulf of Mexico
11:46 AM EDT - 05 June 2001
I may be wrong about the first named system timeframe. We'll most likely have one in June... and early at that... like today. It's possible we have a tropical storm or depression in the Northwest Gulf of Mexico. It's moving slowly toward the Texas and Louisiana coastlines.
This morning some organization has occurred, and we may have our first tropical depression of the season this afternoon. It may even be a storm. Any comments on this early action?
Alex...I do not believe they found a closed circulation center..I would think we'll know by 4 or 5pm...or earlier what they are going to classify this as...my bet is TS Allison, but then again...I'm not a gambling person!!! Colleen
