Report: Tropical Depression 9 Dissipates Before Making Landfall In Mexico, Still a Threat for Belize

It could be a wet weekend in Belize as Tropical Depression 9 nears

Several media outlets are reporting that a tropical depression has weakened into a remnant low as it moves inland over the Yucatan Peninsula, but it still expected to bring some moisture to Belize over the next few days.  

According to PatrickJonesBelize.com, Tropical Depression 9 (TD-9) has failed to develop into a named storm as forecasters expected as it continues to move slowly towards the Mexican state of Campeche, but Belize will be impacted by a lot of rain as TD-9, or what becomes of it, is expected to pass right through northern Belize.

Forecasters still expect the system to develop into Tropical Storm Hanna, according to the report. While forecasters say that TD-9 could fizzle as it makes Friday night and moves further inland over the Yucatan Peninsula and Belize, it remains, "as of now, a rainmaker with between 5-10 inches of rain expected as the Depression progresses," according to the report.
