Mobile, ALA. (WKRG) – Karl has weakened to a tropical depression.

Karl is expected to be a big rainmaker for Mexico. Wind shear continues to increase over the Southern Gulf of Mexico. This will act to tear the system apart. The weakening trend is expected to continue all the way through landfall this weekend.

Karl will not be a threat to the Northern Gulf Coast. We are also tracking another area off the coast of Africa with a low chance for development. This is very far away and we have plenty of time to watch.

Remember…hurricane season continue through November 30th. The First Alert Storm Team will continue to keep you updated on the tropics.
