Tropical Update: Tropical Depression Sixteen has formed with maximum sustained winds of 35 mph. It's located off the east coast of Nicaragua and forecast to move north, eventually into the Gulf of Mexico. The storm is forecast to strengthen into a hurricane upon reaching the Gulf. Right now, it's too early to tell where the storm will go once it gets into the Gulf but some data shows it reaches Louisiana, others, the panhandle of Florida by the weekend.
