NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The remnants of a tropical depression that dissipated before coming ashore in Louisiana last week is heading back toward the mouth of the Mississippi after going overland into Georgia.
Ken Graham, meteorologist in charge for the National Weather Service in Slidell, said it might strengthen first into a tropical depression. He says there's a possibility of it becoming a tropical storm, but it doesn't have much time between now and midweek landfall.
He says the system moved clockwise over Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia, and moved from Georgia back into the Gulf of Mexico — and now it's coming back west.
He says it's again bringing the likelihood of 3 to 5 inches of rain, with the potential of up to 8 inches.
