NHC: Tropical Storm Gordon likely to form Monday

NHC: Tropical Storm Gordon likely to form Monday

Maximum sustained winds were clocked at 45 miles per hour and the system is moving west-northwest at 16 miles per hour.

The tropical wave over South Florida was upgraded to tropical-storm status by the National Hurricane Center Monday morning.

The hurricane warning for Gordon was issued for the area of the central Gulf coast, from the Florida-Alabama border to the mouth of the Pearl River, which separates MS and Louisiana, according to the National Hurricane Center. Gordon may travel into Arkansas by early Thursday, according to the National Hurricane Center.

In addition to flash flooding, the weather service says tornadoes are possible through Monday night across the southern and west-central Florida peninsula. 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. The threat of tropical storm forced winds is low in the ArkLaTex.

A Hurricane Center forecast map showed the storm making landfall on Tuesday evening near the Alabama-Mississippi border. Instead, we may get a few inches of rainfall spread out over a two day period and the winds will be a bit breezy, but that's about all.

Tropical wave sets sight on Florida for Labor Day weekend
A lot of details still need to be worked out, but for now, the current trend is keeping September off to a bit of a soggy start. The National Hurricane Center has also confirmed that this feature has developed into a potential tropical cyclone.

Conditions appear to be conducive for development, and this system is expected to become a tropical depression by Monday morning. Storm surge of 1-2 feet is possible from Destin, FL to the Mississippi/Alabama border. Sustained winds could peak at 30 to 35 miles per hour with gusts over 40 miles per hour in parts of coastal Lee and Collier Counties late Monday afternoon and Monday evening.

Wright said some roadways were partially flooded as the rain came down hard in the area. But that is supposed to change when the disturbance, which is moving west-northwest, enters the Gulf of Mexico.

Florida is to be hit by a storm known as potential tropical cyclone seven this week. There are now no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

Separately, Tropical Storm Florence continues to hold steady over the eastern Atlantic.
