SOUTHEASTERN NORTH CAROLINA (WECT) -

On Sunday, the National Hurricane Center began issuing advisories on Tropical Depression Nine in the southeastern Gulf of Mexico.

Tropical Depression Nine may be able to strengthen into a tropical storm as steering winds guide the system across Florida midweek. Late in the week, the system is likely to pass near or south of the Carolina Coast.

At this time, Tropical Depression Nine is likely to bring neither major nor long-lasting impacts to the Cape Fear Region. However, depending on the systems exact track, some late-week effects like showers and rip currents are possible.

Your First Alert Weather Team will continue to update you on the progress of Tropical Depression Nine. At this point, the system does not look like a huge holiday weekend spoiler, but you'll want to stay tuned for updates.
