The storm was generating winds of 75 km/h on Monday as it steamed west-northwest at 26 km/h, National Hurricane Center Director Kenneth Graham said in a video briefing on Facebook. Gordon has intensified with maximum sustained winds of 50 miles per hour and continues to have an improved structure on satellite and radar (see Fig. 1).

The National Hurricane Center has issued the watch specifically for the " Alabama-Florida border westward to east of Morgan City, Louisiana, including Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Maurepas", though the path is still uncertain.

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.

Gordon could dump 2 to 4 inches of rain over parts of the Bahamas, the Florida Keys and South Florida through early Tuesday. But it is moving quickly to the west-northwest at 17 miles per hour. There are now no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

Gordon formed in the Florida Keys early on Monday morning, and it has already battered southern Florida. Tropical Storm Gordon now sits about 50 miles west of Fort Myers, Florida. While likely to remain outside of the storm's core, this zone is still expected to see gusty winds and heavy rainfall.

"Gordon is moving quickly along and is expected to make a second landfall, perhaps as a hurricane, along the corridor from Louisiana to MS during late Tuesday or Tuesday night", reports Accuweather. Hurricane center experts still expect it to move northwest before it comes anywhere near Florida as it travels around the western edge of an area of high pressure. The first is its speed - Gordon is moving relatively fast at 17 miles per hour and is losing how much warm Gulf water is has to grow stronger.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami says a new tropical storm in the eastern Atlantic will strengthen throughout the weekend but does not now threaten land. The region could see rising waters of 3-5 feet.

The hurricane center also issued a storm surge warning, meaning possible "danger of life-threatening inundation, " for late Tuesday for the area stretching from Shell Beach, Louisiana, to Dauphin Island, Alabama. The system may potentially move ashore anywhere from East Louisiana to East Texas Wednesday or Thursday as a tropical depression or tropical storm. The track of the storm stays well to our south and west.
