National forecasters also issued a tropical storm warning for Florida 's Gulf Coast after a tropical depression gusting winds around 35 miles per hour formed about 125 miles northwest of Cozumel, Mexico. The warning affected the coastline from Englewood to Indian Pass in the Florida Panhandle.

A tropical storm warning was issued Thursday for parts of Florida.

The disturbance, about 305 miles south-southwest of the Mississippi River as of the 8 a.m. Friday update, has maximum sustained wind speeds of 40 mph as it picked up forward speed overnight and is now moving northeast at 21 mph.

Many possible projections of the storm’s path make landfall in northern Florida, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration showed in its storm model.

The NHC issued several warnings and watches.

A tropical storm warning is in effect from the Mississippi-Alabama border to the eastward to Yankeetown in Florida, as well as the Grand Isle, Louisiana to the Mouth of the Pearl River, the NHC said.

Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the coast within the warning area by Friday afternoon, the NHC said.

One possible projection has the storm making landfall at Tyndall Air Force Base, the same location Category 5 Hurricane Michael made landfall last year.

Much of the area surrounding Tyndall is still devastated, including Mexico Beach, where about 75 percent of the city was destroyed, said Mexico Beach Mayor Al Cathey.

The major roadway of the area, U.S. Highway 98, still remains closed.

It would become the 16th tracked system of the Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1-Nov. 30.

The system is in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico, where the environment is favorable for tropical maturity. So much so, the hurricane center expects to see development into a depression later Thursday.

NHC satellite wind data has already detected the system producing wind strength near tropical-storm forces, the NHC said.

“Regardless of the exact track and intensity of the system, these winds will cover a large area, especially east of the center.,” said NHC senior hurricane specialist Daniel Brown.
