MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – The National Hurricane Center released that they will start releasing advisories on Tropical Depression Twenty-Eight later this afternoon. For now they put a 100% chance of tropical development on the area of disturbed weather in the Caribbean.

You can see on the satellite imagery that this system is starting to mold around a low pressure system.

Further strengthening is possible as the system slides north over western Cuba early next week.

There is a high degree of uncertainty regarding the eventual track and intensity of this system. At this point, Gulf Coast residents should keep an eye on it and expect at the very minimum higher rain chances by the middle of next week.
