This system is the one located southeast of the Yucatan peninsula. Most models are in agreement this moves northwest into the western Gulf of Mexico. It is forecast to become a tropical storm, although a hurricane is not out of the question at some point.

Tropical Depression 13 continues to move through the western Atlantic. It is forecast to become a hurricane and move into the eastern Gulf. The northwest moving track of that is something needs to be watched very closely.
