The National Hurricane Center now says a tropical depression could form this week in the Gulf of Mexico from the remnants of Hurricane Agatha.

There is no threat of a hurricane in Sebastian, Florida. However, Agatha may have an impact on our weather by the weekend.

The chance of formation was upgraded to 50 percent on Monday evening.

“This system is forecast to move slowly northeastward, and a tropical depression could form in the northwestern Caribbean or southeastern Gulf of Mexico by the latter part of this week,” NHC said in a statement.

As Sebastian Daily reported last night, Agatha will dissipate by Wednesday morning before it reaches the Gulf of Mexico. After that, an area of low pressure carrying the hurricane’s remnants will merge where it could gradually develop and drift eastward for Florida.
