AccuWeather Says Subtropical Depression Should Bypass GoM Oil Interests reports, as of Friday morning, the storm in the Gulf of Mexico, recently declared Subtropical Depression 10 (formerly Tropical Disturbance 50), should not become a major concern for the western Gulf Coast.

"The Subtropical Depression is less of a concern for oil and gas production, as we are expecting it to turn north and move inland before it can reach hurricane strength," Expert Senior Meteorologist Dale Mohler said.

The storm is currently bringing heavy rain to the Florida Panhandle, and that wet weather will spread along the central Gulf Coast as far west as New Orleans within the next 18 hours.
