TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – The National Hurricane Center will initiate advisories on Tropical Depression Seventeen at 11 am. The system has become better organized overnight.
The depression will be short-lived, however. It will merge with a cold front later today which will prevent any further organization. The tropical moisture will spread out over the northern Gulf Coast states.
There is a low risk for isolated tornadoes and strong storms in lower Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana today as the storm and cold front near the shore.
“Regardless of development, gale-force winds are expected behind the cold front over the western Gulf of Mexico today and Saturday,” the NHC said.
