Just 48 hours before the official beginning of hurricane season, there's tropical activity in the Gulf of Mexico -- sort of.

The remnants of Tropical Depression Barbara, which formed over the Pacific Ocean, have moved across Mexico and entered the Gulf of Mexico, near the Bay of Campeche. The National Hurricane Center says the low level circulation has dissipated, so if the weather system regenerates into a tropical storm once again, it would be named Andrea, from the Atlantic name list.

ABC13 Meteorologist Travis Herzog says some computer models show the remains of Barbara moving into the US Gulf coast next week, anywhere from eastern Louisiana to Florida. None of the forecasts show it moving into Texas.
