Meteorologist-in-Charge Andy Patrick said once it reaches the southern Gulf, forecast tracks have this tropical cyclone moving north and then northeast.

It will likely weaken to a tropical storm by Wednesday.

Be sure to monitor the latest forecasts as there still remains uncertainty in both track and intensity.

Regardless of what happens with TD28, forecasters are expecting increased rain chances on Tuesday and windy conditions by Wednesday or Wednesday night.
