Gordon has weakened to a tropical depression northwest of Jackson, MS this morning. We have been monitoring wind reports around Gordon and really haven’t seen any wind above about 25 mph. Gordon may no longer be any wind threat, but it is still producing heavy rainfall across much of western Alabama from Mobile northward to north of Hamilton in northwest Alabama. Additional heavy rain is falling in west-central and northern Mississippi near Gordon’s center and to the right of its track. This heavy rain will follow Gordon northwestward into Arkansas and northern Mississippi over the next 24 hours, resulting in localized street flooding and travel delays.
The next full advisory will be issued at 3 PM CDT.

The yellow cone represents track error from the previous five hurricane seasons. Over the past five hurricane seasons, the center of the storm tracked within the yellow cone 75% of the time. The cone does not represent the forecast uncertainty in the current advisory for this storm. In addition, hurricane-force winds, very high tides, large waves, and heavy rainfall can often extend well outside the yellow cone.
