07L pulled together into Tropical Storm Gordon overnight as it passed over the southern part of Florida. It skirted Naples this morning and has since stepped out a little farther into the Gulf of Mexico. NWS Miami tweeted, some lingering flooding concerns remain but overall threat has abated. Gordon has been a storm with a small core, heavy rain and lightning scattered throughout. He suffered a bit with land and the heat of the day today and is currently building convection. Models are beginning to favor a hurricane more. Overall they have under-preformed on intensity. Rebuilding convection so early in the evening, wouldn't be surprised to see it more intense in the morning. Below is Tropical Storm Gordon 9/4/2018 at 0212Z.
Gordon appears to be heading towards Southern Alabama, Southern Mississippi and Louisiana. Here are the local key points. This should update when the page is refreshed.
