The area of storminess, previously known as Invest 99-L that we were monitoring for days, finally developed into Tropical Depression Nine near the Florida Keys on Sunday evening.

There remains a large degree of uncertainty around how much this system will strengthen once it gets into the southeast Gulf of Mexico. For now, the clockwise flow around upper-level high pressure over the eastern United States will steer Tropical Depression Nine west-northwest toward the Gulf. That high will weaken by Tuesday, allowing this system to move more north, and then eventually northeast the next several days on a path toward the Florida Gulf Coast.
