Storm warning for US Gulf Coast as potential cyclone approaches

Storm warning for US Gulf Coast as potential cyclone approaches

The National Hurricane Center said at 11 p.m. EDT that the storm was centred 330 miles (530 kilometres) east-southeast of the mouth of the Mississippi River. Gordon has intensified with maximum sustained winds of 50 miles per hour and continues to have an improved structure on satellite and radar (see Fig. 1).

A hurricane watch was issued for the Gulf Coast from the mouth of the Pearl River to the Alabama-Florida border.

Weather forecasters believe Tropical Storm Gordon will strengthen to a hurricane late Tuesday right as it hits the central US Gulf Coast.

The storm was bringing heavy rain and some gusty winds to many areas in South Florida Monday morning.

Separately, Tropical Storm Florence continues to hold steady over the eastern Atlantic. Florence's sustained winds have reached almost 65 miles per hour and the storm is expected to grow stronger later today, according to the National Hurricane Center.

"Little change in strength is expected through tonight, but some weakening is forecast on Wednesday and continue through Friday, " forecasters said.

Gordon continued to weaken Wednesday after becoming a tropical depression as it made landfall near the Mississippi-Alabama border, the National Hurricane Center said. The region could see rising waters of 3 to 5 feet.

However, it is too early for the computer models to make an accurate forecast as to precisely where Tropical Storm Gordon would make landfall.

Gordon, the seventh named storm of the season, is expected to strengthen further as it travels over sea-surface temperatures for the next three days, Stewart said.

Parts of the northern Gulf Coast could see 3 to 6 inches rainfall Tuesday into Wednesday, from southeast Louisiana into far southern MS and far southern Alabama, according to the Weather Channel. That rainfall combined with increased tidal surges are likely to result in localized flooding in the affected areas.

No coastal watches or warnings are in effect through the weekend for Florence.

A Tropical Storm Warning is now in effect for most of the area for the duration of this storm.

The tropics are continuing to show some activity with one tropical storm, a potential tropical cyclone, and a new disturbance.
