Tropical Storm Gordon: Where it's headed and the North Texas impact

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said the storm is expected to move away from the southwestern Florida coast and reach coastal MS and Louisiana by late Tuesday.

The National Hurricane Center has issued a hurricane watch through Tuesday night, particularly in coastal areas of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

Heavy rain, gusty winds and thunderstorms are hitting South Florida as the Gulf Coast braces for looming Tropical Storm Gordon. The current forecast track brings Gordon into southeast Louisiana and southern MS by early Wednesday morning as a strong tropical storm.

Tropical Storm Gordon developed in the Florida Keys on Labor Day morning, while Tropical Storm Florence continued to churn well out in the Atlantic Ocean. Maximum sustained winds were clocked at 85 km/h.

The National Hurricane Center has named the seventh tropical storm for the 2018 Atlantic season, Tropical Storm Gordon.

Airlines including Delta, Southwest and Frontier warned that delays and flight cancellations were possible at airports near the Gulf Coast because of the storm, and that they may waive fees for itinerary changes. There is also a high risk of rip currents at area beaches on both coasts through Tuesday from Tropical Storm Gordon.

At 5 p.m., the disturbance was centered near latitude 22.7 North, longitude 77.3 West or about 275 east-south-east of Marathon, Florida.

The National Hurricane Center has posted tropical storm warnings for Miami-Dade, Collier and Monroe counties, as well as portions of the northern Gulf Coast. Although the strongest winds - again, possibly at least 74 miles per hour as a low-end hurricane - will be at the center, gusty winds will be contained in the outer rain bands.

According to a press release from New Orleans Mayor Latoya Cantrell, residents should prepare for heavy rain, heavy winds and possibly power outages.

A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning areas. Maximum sustained winds of the unnamed system have been clocked at 30 miles per hour (45 kph) and the system is moving west-northwest at 15 miles per hour (24 kph).

Areas under a storm surge watch and storm surge warning.

Authorities also issued a voluntary evacuation order for residents outside the levee protection system, which include the Venetian Isles, Lake Saint Catherine and Irish Bayou areas.

NOAA's GOES-East satellite images show Tropical Storm Gordon over South Florida, valid as of 9 a.m.
