Tropical Depression Eleven - August 27-September 2, 1968

A mid-level cyclone retrograded across Florida into the Gulf of Mexico between August 26th and 27th.
By the morning of the 27th, a tropical depression formed in the southeast Gulf of Mexico which was
steered northeast by the mid-level low.  By the 29th, the mid-level low was lured eastward back across
northern Florida.  As this occurred, the tropical depression reached the coast near Cedar Key before
dropping southward due to the northerly flow aloft on the back side of the upper low.  As a shortwave aloft
moved through the Southeast, both the mid level cyclone and tropical depression lifted northeast.  By
the morning of the 2nd, the depression dissipated offshore the coast of Georgia.
