Tracking the Tropics: Tropical Depression 5 Forms in the Gulf of Mexico

Last week, meteorologist Matt Noyes shared his concern over a slowing cold front approaching Florida, expressing concern that such areas often can produce near-shore tropical spin-ups.  Now, he's outlining today's development of Tropical Depression #5 from that same area of disturbed weather.  The National Hurricane Center forecasts landfall in Louisiana on Thursday, but right now Matt is watching wind shear aloft that is keeping the system disorganized.  Matt will be off Wednesday and Thursday, returning Friday with another Tracking the Tropics update.
