TD#5 Forms in Gulf of Mexico
05:40 PM EDT - 13 August 2000
Motion stationary but eventually moving northwest, we now have our 5th Tropical Depression of the season. This came back and surprised me the other day, and now it has happened. There was development this weekend :).
Folks along the Western Gulf Coast should be watching it since it has time to strengthen. More will come later. The rest of the Gulf should be aware of it as well. My initial prediction has it somewhere north or near Brownsville, TX in about two-three days. Keep watch.
