Tropical Storm Jenny - October 1-6,
Jenny was the last in a series of tropical depressions to move through
the eastern Gulf of Mexico. Forming due
to a neaby upper level low, the depression moved northward out of the
western Caribbean, steered by Tropical
Depression 32 which was moving into the Florida Panhandle.
The system slowly developed, becoming a tropical
storm southwest of Key West on October 2nd. Continuing to the
northeast, Jenny moved just offshore Cape
Canaveral before building high pressure to its north forced the
weakening tropical depression on a more
westward track. Moving back into the Gulf of Mexico on the 5th,
Jenny moved westward through the north-
central Gulf of Mexico before dissipating. The graphics below
show the storm total rainfall for Jenny.
