DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1100 PM EDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression

The depression is moving toward the west-northwest near 8 mph (13
km/h) and this motion with a decrease in forward speed is expected 
during the next few days.  On the forecast track, the center of 
depression is forecast to move inland over south Florida during the 
next several hours, move over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico late 
Saturday, and then move northwestward over the north-central Gulf 
of Mexico on Monday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts.
The depression could become a tropical storm before moving across 
south Florida overnight.  Otherwise it is expected to become
a tropical storm Saturday night or Sunday and gradually intensify 
through Monday.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1007 mb (29.74 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch
area in south Florida overnight and early Saturday.  Tropical storm
conditions are possible in the watch area in the Florida Panhandle
by Sunday night.

RAINFALL:  Tropical Depression Nineteen is expected to produce total 
rainfall accumulations of 1 to 3 inches with isolated maximum 
amounts of 5 inches across central and southern Florida, including 
the Florida Keys through Sunday.  This rainfall may produce isolated 
flash flooding and prolong high flows and ongoing minor flooding on 
rivers across Central Florida. Total rainfall accumulations of 2 to 
4 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 6 inches is expected 
across the western Florida Panhandle. This rainfall could produce

SURF:  Swells are expected to spread northward along the
