A surface low formed offshore southwest Florida and became a
tropical depression. The system looped anticyclonically
through southern Florida and slowly developed, moving back offshore western Florida. Deepening further, the system
struck Cedar Key on the 16th and was whisked northeastward ahead of an upper low. The system weakened over land
and moved along the coastal plain past Maine. The graphics below show the storm total rainfall for the tropical depression,
with data provided by the National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, North Carolina. The heaviest amounts fell across
eastern South Carolina to the right of the track of the low.
