  • TS Gordon in the Gulf? Tropical wave has 90 percent chance to develop

The storm now packing maximum sustained winds of 30 miles per hour (45 kph) is expected to produce up to 4 inches (10 cm) of rain in parts of the Bahamas, the Florida Keys and South Florida through early Tuesday, it said.

It said the storm, which is gradually gaining strength, could dump 5-10 centimeters of rain over parts of the Bahamas, the Florida Keys and south Florida through early Tuesday.

In Southwest Florida, the primary change in the forecast will be that winds will be gustier late on Labor Day, particularly near the Gulf Coast. However, right now these tropical systems are not forecast to impact Middle Georgia.

Tropical Storm Gordon may become a hurricane as it crosses the Gulf of Mexico toward Louisiana and New Orleans, potentially causing issues for natural gas and oil production as it brushes the eastern edge of offshore energy fields. The center noted that tropical-storm-force wind gusts will be possible today across portions of South Florida and the Florida Keys.

Activity in the Atlantic Ocean and Carribean is becoming very active as the peak of hurricane season is upon us.

Tropical Storm Gordon formed Monday morning over the southern tip of Florida.

The belief that she could make that dream a reality has stayed with her every step, swing and serve of her career. There are four really high profile tennis competitions known as the Grand Slam tournaments.

A hurricane watch - meaning that hurricane conditions are possible - was put into effect for the area stretching from the mouth of the Pearl River in MS to the Alabama-Florida border.

But there are no coastal watches or warnings in effect and its top wind speed has slowed.

The storm is expected to continue moving northwest, crossing the Gulf of Mexico over the next two days.

Wind gusts of 48 mph were recorded in Fort Lauderdale, 49 mph in Pembroke Pines, and 51 mph in Opa-locka.

Southern Florida and parts of the Gulf Coast could see 3 to 6 inches of rain, and locally southern Florida could see up to 8 inches of rain.

Much further east, we are still keeping very close watch on Tropical Storm Florence.
