NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — It's been largely quiet in the Atlantic for the last couple of weeks, but a new tropical depression is here to remind us it is still hurricane season.

Tropical Depression Twenty-Five has formed near the Yucatan Peninsula. This system is expected to produce heavy rainfall with flooding concerns for the Yucatan Peninsula and parts of western Cuba.

By this weekend, the system will enter the Gulf of Mexico and could become a Tropical Storm. The next Tropical Storm to form in the Atlantic will have the name Gamma. Right now there is no immediate threat to the United States, but we will keep an eye on its track.

Here at home, with only a small threat of rain on Sunday, we will enjoy a long stretch of nice mainly dry weather for the first full week of October!
