Tropical Storm Gordon brings rough weather to southern Florida

Tropical Storm Gordon brings rough weather to southern Florida

A second tropical storm formed in the Atlantic basin Monday, but neither Florence or Gordon appears to be a threat to Southeastern North Carolina at this time.

Tropical Storm Gordon, after forming on Monday morning near Key Largo, was moving northwest into the Gulf of Mexico.

A Tropical Storm Gordon Twitter account even cropped up on Monday, personifying the terror so many people felt.

The National Hurricane Center reported that the storm could unleash "life-threatening" storm surge to portions of the central Gulf Coast.

Norman said wind gusts clocked-in at 49 miles per hour at St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport and 45 miles per hour in Bradenton around 1:30 p.m.

Gordon, with its tropical storm-force winds extending about 45 miles from its core, was moving to the northwest at a speed of 17 mph. It will likely strengthen a bit, but still stay a tropical storm.

In August, hurricane experts at Colorado State University said conditions in the Atlantic - cooler-than-average ocean surface temperatures and varying wind speeds - have diminished the chances of a hurricane striking the USA during the remainder of the hurricane season, which goes until November 30. Gordon is expected to produce rain accumulations of 4 to 6 inches over southern Alabama, southern MS and Louisiana, with some isolated areas receiving up to 8 inches, through early Thursday. Its forecast path takes the storm directly to the Gulf Coast of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

Hurricane warnings are now in effect until further notice for coastal MS and tropical storm warnings remain in effect for the rest of the viewing area. Isolated tornadoes are possible. Over the warm waters of the open Gulf some strengthening is expected.

Over southern Alabama, southern MS and Louisiana, rainfall of 4 to 6 inches is forecast.

Gordon's greatest impact to Tampa Bay will be increased chances of heavy rain and thunderstorms. As it approached the upper Florida Keys, it strengthened and was reclassified. A Storm Surge Watch is in effect for a portion of the Mississippi-Alabama border. The storm was moving west-northwest at 18 miles per hour (30 kph).
