The depression's maximum sustained winds early Friday are near 35 mph (55 kph) and the U.S. National Hurricane Center says the depression is expected to become a tropical storm later in the day.
A tropical storm warning is in effect for Mexico's coast from Coatzacoalcos to Barra de Nautla. The storm is expected to dump 10 to 15 inches of rain over a large part of eastern Mexico with 25 inches in some places.
Meanwhile far out over the Atlantic, Hurricane Humberto is losing strength and is expected to weaken to a tropical storm later in the day.
Also, Gabrielle has weakened to a tropical depression.
