The tropical disturbance in the Caribbean became Tropical Depression No. 14 on Sunday, and the National Hurricane Center thinks the storm has a more muscular future.

The storm as of 10 a.m. Sunday remained off the coast of Belize, according to the National Hurricane Center. The current forecast cone from the hurricane center shows the storm may hit land somewhere between Mobile, Ala., and northwestern parts of Florida.

He will be updated on Tropical Storm Michael in the Emergency Operations Center at 5 p.m. Sunday.

The depression is moving toward the north near 6 miles per hour (9 kph) with maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour (55 kph).

Through Monday morning, the storm is set to lash the eastern Yucatan Peninsula and western Cuba, which were under tropical storm warnings, with heavy rain and gusty winds.

Nelson cautioned against social-media speculations on the storm's impact.

"This system is expected to produce heavy rainfall and flash flooding over portions of Central America, western Cuba and the northeastern Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico during the next couple of days", the National Hurricane Center said in its update.

Scott will issue an executive order declaring an emergency in the Panhandle and the Big Bend - generally areas surrounding Tallahassee - because of a storm in the Gulf of Mexico that was labeled Tropical Depression 14. A northward motion should continue across the east-central Gulf of Mexico through Tuesday, before a gradual northeastward turn is possible late Tuesday into Wednesday.

In Southwest Florida, conditions will be windy and stormy through Wednesday and boating in the Gulf will become hazardous at times starting late Monday. "As we continue to monitor this storm's path toward Florida, it is critically important that our communities have every available resource to keep everyone safe". Air Force Hurricane Hunters are flying through Michael on Sunday afternoon and we'll begin to see a more complete picture of what the storm is doing tonight.
