WEATHER: TS Gordon Skirting Gulf Coast, Rain is Our Primary Threat




The National Weather Service radar shows TS Gordon impacting the Apalachicola area around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Tropical Storm Gordon is churning Northwest toward New Orleans Tuesday morning and it looks like southwest Georgia is going to miss most of the storm.  As of 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, the projected path still takes the system south of the Florida panhandle.

While the storm churns in the warm Gulf waters, Accuweather is predicting that Gordon could reach hurricane levels before making landfall:

Gordon is moving quickly along and is expected to make a second landfall, perhaps as a Category 1 hurricane, along the corridor from Louisiana to Mississippi during late Tuesday or Tuesday night. — Accuweather

When TS Gordon does make landfall, it will be the second time – the southern tip of Florida’s peninsula was impacted by the storm Monday before it made it’s way into the Gulf.
