MIAMI - A new tropical depression has formed in the Gulf of Mexico.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday that tropical depression No. 6 was located about 50 miles northeast of the Mexican state of Veracruz with maximum sustained winds of 35 mph. It was moving west about 12 mph.

The Center said the depression should strengthen into a tropical storm before it makes landfall Monday. A tropical storm warning was in effect on Mexico's Gulf coast from Veracruz to Tampico.

The storm is expected to produce 4 to 8 inches of rain over parts of several states.

In the eastern Pacific on Sunday, former Tropical Storm Ivo weakened further from a tropical depression into a remnant low, with winds decreasing to 30 mph (45 mph).
