MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- Tropical Depression Nine is hugging the coastal bend of Mexico in the Bay of Campeche, slowly moving east and, at times, showing a stationary position.  Heavy rain will impact locations on the Yucatan Peninsula for the rest of this week.  There's a slight chance for the depression to gain enough organization to become Tropical Storm Hanna before landfall.  By the weekend, the system is forecast to emerge into the far western Caribbean or near the Yucatan Channel, where slow movement is still expected.  It is very unclear in what form the system will take if and when it reached the Caribbean waters.

The low-pressure system near the Azores has not shown much development, and its potential to become a subtropical depression has decreased.
