slowly away from western Cuba, and move into the eastern Gulf of
Mexico over the next 48 hours.

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts.
Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and the
depression is expected to become a tropical storm on Tuesday.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1003 mb (29.62 inches)
based on recent data from a NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft.

and mud slides.  Total rain accumulations of 3 to 7 inches are
possible over much of the Florida peninsula through Thursday.
Isolated maximum amounts of 10 inches are possible along the west
