FLORIDA (WGNO) – A hurricane watch has been issued for the Florida Gulf Coast from the Anclote River Indian Pass.

Tropical Depression Nine was churning in the Gulf of Mexico about 350 miles west of Key West, Florida Tuesday evening.

A tropical storm watch has been issued for the Florida Gulf Coast west of Indian Pass to the Walton/Bay County line.

The storm is expected to hit the Florida Gulf Coast Thursday, then work its way up the Atlantic coast from there.

The National Hurricane Center predicts that it will hit the coast as a tropical storm. They also say the track is harder to forecast for this particular storm.
