  • Tropical depression may form in the Gulf of Mexico this week

The threat of tropical storm forced winds is low in the ArkLaTex.

Tropical Storm Gordon has formed near the Florida Keys and south Florida with winds gusts up to 45-miles-per-hour and heavy rain as Labor Day weekend comes to a close.

The National Hurricane Center ended a tropical storm warning late Monday for a region that included South Florida, spanning from Miami-Dade County to Bonita Beach on the state's west coast.

Tropical storm warnings are also posted in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, where Gordon will likely make landfall early Wednesday morning.

The center said in its 8:30 a.m. advisory that the storm was centered 20 miles west of Key Largo and 85 miles southeast of Marco Island. That means gusty winds and rain for Tampa Bay, but Norman said there are no tropical storm warnings for any land areas. Maximum sustained winds were clocked at 45 miles per hour.

Gordon is the seventh named tropical storm or hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year.

USA will 'cut all funds to United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees'
The 68-year-old agency says it provides services to about 5 million Palestinian refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and the West Bank and Gaza.

Tropical Storm Gordon now has maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour and is moving to the WNW at 17 miles per hour. If this happens, hurricane warnings and storm surge amounts may be shifted based on the new forecast track.

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

At the mouth of the Mississippi River, around the area of New Orleans, the storm could generate a surge of up to 4 feet (1.2 meters) and smaller surges could hit coastland along other parts of the Gulf Coast, Graham said.

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 WNW to NW motion is expected over the next 72 hours.

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. Over the warm waters of the open Gulf some strengthening is expected. As it approached the upper Florida Keys, it strengthened and was reclassified.
