Storm watch issued for central US Gulf Coast

The National Hurricane Center along with the National Weather Service and we at KHOU are closely monitoring a tropical wave over Turks and Caicos islands that could bring very heavy rain to a portion of the gulf coast by the end of this coming week

But Florence is moving west-northwest at 15 miles per hour and little change is expected in that path before Tuesday.

Gordon is expected to maintain a northwestward movement over the next two to three days, making landfall in the central Gulf of Mexico coast Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.

A tropical storm warning has been issued for the Gulf Coast from the Florida-Alabama boarder to Louisiana.

The latest track from the National Hurricane Center continues this movement, and tracks Gordon generally towards New Orleans.

The center says the system will gradually strengthen and is expected to become a tropical depression sometime Monday and a tropical storm by Monday evening. A tropical storm warning was also extended eastward to the Okaloosa-Walton County Line.

The National Hurricane Center says a tropical wave now over the Bahamas will move into the eastern Gulf Of Mexico on Labor Day and may strengthen as early as Tuesday.

Our greatest threat from this system comes in the form of heavy rain causing ponding on roads.

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.

There are now three tropical systems forecasters are watching on Monday morning.

At the time, peak sustained winds were 45 miles per hour, but wind gusts were in the 50 mph-to-60 miles per hour range.

All of South Florida is now under a tropical storm warning.

As the tropical storm crosses Florida, the worst of the rain will fall to the south of Interstate 4, and be especially heavy over Okeechobee County and the Treasure Coast, the National Weather Service said Sunday.

Flooding was also a high risk for the areas affected by the storm, including portions of southeast Louisiana north of Interstate 10 and southwest MS west of Interstate 55.

A Tropical Storm Watch means conditions of a tropical storm are expected within 48 hours in the U.S. state. If caught in a rip current, relax and float. So don't expect to dry out any time before the National Football League season starts next Sunday.
