NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The Caribbean disturbance has now become Tropical Depression 9 and is likely to become a hurricane in the Southeast Gulf early next week.

Morning satellite images show the Caribbean disturbance has organized enough to be upgraded to a depression. The system has gained a more well-defined circulation and is beginning to form convection around the center.

The first official track from the National Hurricane Center has been issued and shows a strengthening storm moving through the Northwest Caribbean followed by a turn north into the Southeast Gulf. Conditions look favorable for this system to become a hurricane down the road and the possibility of a Florida hurricane threat is increasing.

This type of track for Louisiana and Mississippi would yield some really nice fall weather next week.
