Here we go again...

StormTrack is predicting that tropical depression #24, currently well out in the Caribbean, will develop into a major (Category 3 most likely) hurricane and pass into the Gulf of Mexico.

Soon-to-be-Wilma is also getting play on the Matt Newman's (of the Weather Channel) personal blog.

Don't put away the sandbags yet, kiddies.

UPDATE: It's officially TS Wilma now, which ties the record for number of named storms in a season. If we get another one this year, it will be TS Alpha.

Current models show bad news for the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico and after that, there's not much consensus. The good news is that the Gulf is no longer warm enough to support a Category 4 or 5 storm.

Stay tuned...
