Tropical Depression Seven Forms in Bay of Campeche. Dennis Ends
05:06 PM EDT - 05 September 1999
Well, no sooner than the last official advisory on Dennis was written, we have a new tropical depression to speak of, with the prospect of another later this week in the Central Atlantic. Dennis is now just dumping rain over North and South Carolina, and probably causing some flooding problems. Dennis is no longer being tracked by the NHC.
TD#7 however, may want to immitate Hurricane Bret, which is not good for Texas. The NHC hints it may want to travel further north like Bret did, so once again, we'll be watching. The official forecast is to have it make landfall in Northern Mexico before getting too strong. It's a bit early to form any serious conclusions on it, however.
I apologize for the lack of the "Local Hurricane Statements" for North Carolina, but lack of time last week as well as other technical problems kept it from happening.
