Tropical Storm Gordon is the primary concern.

Gordon is moving steadily at 15 miles per hour (24 km/h) toward the coast, the NHC said.

With the app, you can constantly see all of the computer models, storm tracks and the latest written and video forecasts.

A couple of tornadoes are possible near the Alabama and Florida coasts, the NHC said. Rapid weakening is expected after Gordon moves inland.

"If you live in the coastal counties, especially in surge- and flood-prone areas, it is imperative that you get to a safe place by early afternoon and stay there through Wednesday morning".

Closer to home, Gordon will continue to bring some heavy rain into South Florida on Tuesday, with a few lingering showers and storms across the Orlando area.

There are several disturbances tracking across the Atlantic over the coming weeks including Florence which attained hurricane status on Monday, making it the third hurricane of the Atlantic hurricane season.

Tropical Storm Warnings are in effect for southeast Louisiana, and Hurricane Warnings are in effect for coastal MS and Alabama.

The National Hurricane Center said early Wednesday that Gordon was weakening on a path into Arkansas after striking the coast at 70 miles per hour, just shy of hurricane strength, near Pascagoula, Mississippi.

Innes said the price outlook for crude was still bullish, in large part because of U.S. sanctions targeting Iran's oil sector from November.

Toobin added that the public can wear itself out in regards to its outrage over Trump's behavior. Attorney, the judges unanimously voted to keep Berman as acting U.S.

The U.S. Gulf Coast refineries represent more than 45 percent of the national refining capacity, and the Gulf of Mexico yields 17 percent of the country's total oil production.

Forecasters say they still expect Tropical Storm Gordon to become a hurricane before making landfall somewhere along or near the MS coast.

Parts of southern and western Arkansas will get 4 to 6 inches of rain, the statement said, noting there will be a risk for flash flooding and then river flooding.

UPDATE: 7 p.m.: The center of Tropical Storm Gordon was continuing its northwest track with landfall expected this evening or overnight, according to the latest update from the National Hurricane Center.

A storm surge warning has been issued for the area stretching from Shell Beach, Louisiana, to Dauphin Island, Alabama.

"The weather will be pretty seasonable for this time for this time of year", McGraw said.

"Effects from the storm will be felt greater more towards the western end of the Panhandle", Eric Esbensen, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Mobile, Ala., said Tuesday morning.

Off to the east coast of Florida, storms are developing.

The National Hurricane Center said it is way too early to know if either of those storms would have any effect on land.
