Wouldn't be surprised for this to get TD status briefly. Won't do much more than that, though.

Getting interesting hm, wouldn't be surprised to see Emily honestly

Satellite and radar data indicate that showers and thunderstorms
associated with a small low pressure area located about 90 miles
west of Tampa, Florida, are showing some signs of organization.
Environmental conditions are marginally conducive for some
additional development before the low moves inland over the
central Florida peninsula later today or tonight, and over the
western Atlantic late Tuesday or Wednesday. Regardless of
development, the low is expected to produce gusty winds and locally
heavy rainfall across portions of the Florida peninsula during the
next couple of days. Please see additional information from your
local National Weather Service Forecast Offices concerning the
rainfall threat.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...40 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.

At 800 AM EDT (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Emily was
located near latitude 27.7 North, longitude 83.2 West. Emily is
moving toward the east near 8 mph (13 km/h), and this general motion
is expected to continue today. A turn toward the northeast and an
increase in forward speed are expected tonight or Tuesday. On the
forecast track, the center of Emily is expected to move inland over
the the west-central Florida peninsula later today and move across
central Florida through tonight. Emily is expected to move offshore
of the east-central Florida coast early Tuesday.

NOAA Doppler radar data from Tampa, Florida, indicate that maximum
sustained winds have increased to near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher
gusts. Little change in strength is forecast until landfall occurs
this afternoon. Emily is expected to weaken to a tropical
depression while it moves across the Florida peninsula tonight.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1006 mb (29.71 inches).

Emily developed quickly. Isn't this an unusual location for a TS to start and develop?

Landfall 10:45 EDT on Anna Maria Island, west of Bradenton.

Depression, Storm, Landfall all within about 4 hours.

Back to a depression as it moves over central Florida.

The initial forecast this morning when Emily was declared a Depression never had her strengthening into a Tropical Storm. I wonder what could have happened if Emily formed further out into the Gulf?
