TD-5 Is No More...

Tropical Depression 5 wasn't long for this world.  As of the 4pm CDT advisory today, the National Hurricane center deemed the system as "dissipated".  A broad circulation is still present (as noted in the above satellite image), however the system no longer meets the definition of a tropical cyclone.

The system will continue drifting North/Northwest over the next 24-48 hours, producing widespread rain, some heavy, across the southcentral and southeast Gulf Coast.  The system is likely to spread rain into the remainder of the Southeast U.S. over the coming weekend.
