The remnants of Tropical Depression #5 that dissipated before coming ashore in Louisiana last week is heading back toward the mouth of the Mississippi after going overland into Georgia.

The National Weather Service says it might strengthen first into a tropical depression, and there's a possibility of it becoming a tropical storm.

The system moved clockwise over Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia, and moved from Georgia back into the Gulf of Mexico - and now it's coming back west.

The system will likely bring 3 to 5 inches of rain, with the potential of up to eight inches.
