Satellite, radar, and surface data indicate a tropical depression is forming within the disturbed weather in the Bay of Campeche. The National Hurricane Center will issue a special advisory on this system by 11:30am EDT today. This system is expected to move ashore over the Mexican coast and not present a threat to the U.S. A Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate the system at 5pm EDT today to see if the depression has strengthened into Tropical Storm Jose.
