    It was moving toward the west-northwest at 9 miles per hour. The tropical depression was expected to keep heading in the same direction over the coming days, with a decrease in forward speed.

    The center of the tropical depression was expected to move over Belize and northern Guatemala Monday night and early Tuesday, followed by eastern Mexico by late Tuesday, the National Hurricane Center said. The depression could emerge into the southern Bay of Campeche by early Wednesday.

    Weakening was expected as the tropical depression moves inland, although some strengthening is possible if its center emerges into the Bay of Campeche, the National Hurricane Center said.

    The tropical depression was expected to produce total rainfall accumulations of 3 to 5 inches, with totals of up to 10 inches possible across parts of Belize, Guatemala, northern Honduras and several Mexican states, according to the National Hurricane Center.

    No coastal watches or warnings were in effect.
