Tropical Storm Gordon Forms, Warnings Issued

Tropical Storm Gordon Forms, Warnings Issued

Tropical Storm Gordon, which formed over the Florida Keys on Monday morning, is lashing southern Florida with heavy rain, the National Hurricane Center said Monday morning. We could likely see tropical storm watches issues for the area by this evening. Maximum sustained winds of the unnamed system have been clocked at 30 miles per hour (45 kph) and the system is moving west-northwest at 15 miles per hour (24 kph). The current projection would have Gordon make landfall near the Louisiana-Mississippi border as a tropical storm early Wednesday morning.

Tropical Storm Florence loses some strength this afternoon, but it continues to move westward into the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Although the track of the system is uncertain, a more westward track toward East Texas may help to increase Central Texas' rain chances late next week. Over the weekend, that will mean heavy rains across south Florida, the NHC said.

Impact to land is expected along the Gulf Coast, anywhere from the panhandle of Florida to Louisiana (where tropical storm watches are already in effect).

As much as 3 to 6 inches of rain is forecast across coastal MS and southeast Louisiana over the next few days, and higher amounts could occur, the weather service said in a news bulletin Monday morning.

As Tropical Storm Gordon inundates South Florida's Labor Day, the question becomes will the storm do the same to Tuesday's start of the work week?

As of 11 a.m., Gordon was located about 60 miles west-northwest of Key Largo, Florida. "With the peak of hurricane season upon us, now is the time to get prepared", Scott said in a tweet on Sunday.

A hurricane watch was issued for the Gulf Coast from the mouth of the Pearl River to the Alabama-Florida border. Tropical Storm Gordon, now off the coast of South Florida, will move northwest over the next three days.
