It appears that, in the next 5 days, over 2 feet of rain could fall in New Orleans from the newly-declared Tropical Depression 13 in the Gulf of Mexico.
'How in the world is this possible?' is what you're probably thinking. Well, it's complicated to say the least. Tropical Depression 13 will probably strengthen into Tropical Storm Lee OR Maria, but that's a whole different story. Let's assume that this storm will become Lee. Lee will be wandering around the Gulf of Mexico, eyeing each state in the Gulf and eventually making landfall as at least a tropical storm.
