Recon from this afternoon found a closed center of circulation, so TD 5 was classified. There will be only an additional 24 hours for it to strengthen before landfall. Because of this, significant strengthening is not expected - more than minimal tropical storm strength. The main effects from this system will be from heavy rainfall and the threat of flash flooding.
