The worst conditions are expected to arrive along the north central Gulf Coast by late afternoon Tuesday and, especially, Tuesday evening.

"Gordon is expected to bring life-threatening storm surge and hurricane conditions to portions of the central Gulf Coast where a Storm Surge Warning and Hurricane Warning are in effect", the center says.

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.

While the system is expected to bring hurricane winds and rain to the Gulf Coast, the fast 17 miles per hour pace at which the storm was moving gave it less time to strengthen over waters before it is expected to hit land. The storm was headed west-northwest at 17 miles per hour into the Gulf of Mexico and had maximum winds of 65 miles per hour. Forecasters said the storm could be near hurricane strength when it is projected to make landfall tomorrow night.

New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell said the city has "the pumps and the power" needed to protect its residents from the storm.

Gordon has been marching up from the Florida keys, lashing south Florida with rain and tropical storm-force winds.

Tropical Storm Gordon has left many businesses on Florida's Gulf Coast feeling shortchanged by the holiday weekend.

Authorities also issued a voluntary evacuation order for residents outside the levee protection system, which include the Venetian Isles, Lake Saint Catherine and Irish Bayou areas.

About 300 vessels in Biloxi's harbors have been ordered to evacuate by 2 p.m. Tuesday due to the risk from storm surge there. This will mean some flooding possibilities for Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, and the Mobile area.

With strong winds pushing against the coast, there is the concern of a 3-5 foot storm surge in Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi.

"And remember, if you're even inland you can get some of these heavy rainfall totals, so now is the time to be prepared". Many replies to various National Weather Service accounts or other outlets with their pleas that the storm veer spontaneously away, as the Gulf coast is still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

The last time there was no hurricane between July 13 and September 3, peak season, was in 2013, Klotzbach said.
