Tropical Storm Gordon Is Real Rainmaker For South Florida

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

Tropical Storm Gordon formed in the Florida Keys and headed toward the Gulf of Mexico on Monday morning with maximum winds of 45 miles per hour, the National Hurricane Center said.

Geo Rodriguez chose to go for a walk on Hollywood Beach, north of Miami, on Monday morning and got caught in the storm.

The National Hurricane Center reported that the storm could unleash "life-threatening" storm surge to portions of the central Gulf Coast. A tropical storm warning was also in effect from the Okaloosa-Walton County border west to Morgan City, Louisiana. Maximum sustained winds were clocked at 50 miles per hour.

The seventh tropical storm in the Atlantic has officially been named.

The storm was moving at 17 mph west-northwest with maximum sustained winds of 50 mph, which is 5 mph higher than the forecast three hours earlier.

For now it appears that flooding and storm surge will be the primary concerns for areas near landfall.

Elsewhere, a patch of bad weather off the African coast formed into Tropical Storm Florence early Saturday morning but is not expected to reach hurricane strength or threaten the United States.

The storm left many businesses on Florida's Gulf Coast feeling shortchanged by the holiday weekend. The center issued storm surge warnings from Shell Beach, the MS border with Alabama.

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. A storm surge watch was extended to the western Florida Panhandle. Over the warm waters of the open Gulf some strengthening is expected.

The storm is also expected to produce rainfall totals of 4-6 inches over Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana.

Weather forecasters have issued storm warnings for portions of South Florida and the Florida Keys. Since the storm will have weakened, the main threats for North Texas will be heavy, tropical rains.

The system is brewing about 175 miles (281 kilometers) east-southeast of Marathon in the Florida Keys.
