NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - Hurricane Hunters have found a depression in the Southwest Gulf of Mexico. It is forecast to become Tropical Storm Wilfred in the coming days and drift to the north. As of right now computer guidance is in good agreement that a stall and westward drift back toward Mexico or Deep South Texas will occur late in the weekend and early next week. It is too early to tell if there will be any direct impacts for Southeast Louisiana or the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

East winds are going to increase over the weekend and that means minor coastal flooding will be possible for east facing shorelines. This will last into at least the early part of next week. Stay with FOX 8 for the latest on this developing storm.
