Update on TD # 5

The latest information from the National Hurricane Center indicates that the depression has not changed much in strength since this morning. The system may reach minimal tropical storm status before making landfall early Thursday morning southeast of New Orleans. The system is then expected to curve more northward and the latest track indicates that it will go directly over the Pine Belt but be a very slow moving system which could create a very heavy rainfall event for this area. We will continue to monitor the system closely and will continue to update our blogs-tweets and website throughout the event. I will also issue my usual forecast on the air at noon today. Rex
