In the tropics, Tropical Depression # 5 formed at midday on Saturday.  At 5 am Sunday, TD # 5  was located near 33.3 North, 64.9 West, about 70 miles north of Bermuda.  TD # 5 had maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour and was moving northeast at 20 miles per hour.  This system is likely to strengthen slightly before losing its tropical characteristics and dissipating by midweek.  Elsewhere, we’re watching a disorganized area of showers off the northern Gulf Coast.  This feature has a low chance of developing before coming ashore, but it could develop once it emerges off the Carolina coast in a few days.
