Tropical Storm Gordon continued its push toward the northern Gulf Coast and is expected to make landfall by Tuesday night as a hurricane, according to forecasters. Preparations should be completed this morning as conditions will deteriorate quickly during the afternoon and evening.

The storm was producing gusty winds and heavy rain along the coast of the western Florida Panhandle and along the Texas coast, the National Hurricane Center said in an afternoon advisory.

Tropical Storm Gordon is expected to make landfall as a hurricane.

Gordon is moving very quickly to the northwest at 15 miles per hour and on the current forecast track, it is likely to make landfall near Pascagoula around 10 p.m. this evening. The Coast Guard has warned that three ports nearby may need to be closed, including New Orleans, and Gulfport and Pascagoula in Mississippi.

People living outside New Orleans' levee system have been asked to evacuate voluntarily and there are warnings of a "life-threatening" five-foot storm surge on the coast east of the city.

As expected, the latest track forecast from the National Hurricane Center keeps being pushed to the east, but still needs to come farther east...

Rainfall across the area is expected to be three to six inches, with possibly higher amounts locally. We're being told to expect rain and wind, and we're preparing accordingly.

Tropical Storm Gordon has formed near the Florida Keys and south Florida with winds gusting up to 45-miles-per-hour and heavy rains as Labor Day weekend comes to a close. A storm surge warning has been issued for the area stretching from Louisiana to Alabama.

At 5 p.m., the center of the system was about 95 miles southeast of Biloxi, Mississippi.

The center says Gordon will bring heavy rainfall to southwest Alabama, southern and central MS, southeastern and northeastern Louisiana and southeast Arkansas through late Thursdays.

But much of the storms effects will bypass the Tampa Bay area completely, according to Rodney Wynn, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Ruskin.

By early Tuesday morning, the storm was centred 365 kilometers east-southeast of the mouth of the Mississippi River, with top sustained winds of 100 kph, forecasters said.
