Tropical Depression Lee is located just WNW of Baton Rouge. It is moving ENE at 7 mph. Winds have droped to near 35 mph with gusts near 45mph. The pressure is up to 990 mb.

Lee has run its course and is now beginning to lose its tropical characteristics as a cooler land based air mass influences it. The cold front to the Northwest expected to drop through Southeast Louisiana Monday afternoon will continue to deteriorate Lee and by Monday night Lee should be no more than a remant low.
