MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – The tropical depression in the Gulf of Mexico has been upgraded to Tropical Storm Hanna. It is the eighth named storm of the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season.
Some more strengthening is possible as the storm heads for the Texas Gulf Coast. Hanna is expected to make landfall late Friday or early Saturday as a strong tropical storm.
Moisture from Hanna has lead to enhanced rain chances for our part of the Gulf Coast. Rain chances will stay elevated for Friday.
Tropical Storm Gonzalo continues to move west at 10-15 mph. Maximum sustained winds are holding at 60 mph. The forecast no longer calls for Gonzalo to strengthen to a hurricane as it moves towards the Lesser Antilles. A weakening trend is expected after it moves into the Caribbean. By the time it reaches the central Caribbean it will likely dissapate. We’ll continue to follow closely.
