WEATHER: Tropical Storm Could Become Hurricane, Hit Florida Coast on Thursday

Key Points:
  • Tropical Depression 9 is moving slowly west into the Southeastern Gulf of Mexico.
  • The general track is expected to be westward for the next day or two before turning north and northeast by the middle of the week.
  • This system will approach the Big Bend or Panhandle coast sometime on Thursday.
  • Tropical Depression 9 is expected to become a Tropical Storm by Tuesday, with some strengthening expected before landfall. A minimal hurricane is not out of the question.
  • It is too early to get specific about potential impacts. However, strong winds, heavy rain, and storm surge are all possible.
