Tropical Depression Three has formed off the Yucatan peninsula's west coast.

 

The depression is moving west-northwestward and could become a depression or tropical storm later tonight or tomorrow.

"The system is then forecast to drift westward or west-southwestward over the southern Bay of Campeche through the middle of the week," said National Hurricane Center forecaster Daniel Brown. "This motion at a slower forward speed is expected tonight. The depression is forecast to turn west-southwestward or southward at a slower forward speed on Tuesday, and meander over the southern Bay of Campeche through late Wednesday."
