The storm's latest details will be updated below. NHC has chances at HIGH for this to develop into a tropical depression or storm later Tuesday or Wednesday.

The NHC has issued hurricane watch advisories before Gonzalo's expected development.

A Storm Surge Warning has been issued from Port Mansfield to Sargent, Texas. It is expected to make landfall near Corpus Christi at about 1 p.m. on Saturday. Tropical Storm Gonzalo will move westward toward the Windward Islands and could approach the islands as a minimal hurricane before weakening later this weekend as it moves into the Caribbean. Sustained wind speeds of 60 to 75 miles per hour (97 to 120 km/h) with higher gusts are likely to affect the island.

"There is still an incredible amount of uncertainty in Gonzalo's intensity forecast", the National Hurricane Center reports.

Tropical Depression 8 is expected to bring rain and possible coastal flooding to South Mississippi as it heads for landfall in Texas - and behind it is Tropical Storm Gonzalo.

In the Pacific Ocean, Hurricane Douglas has created winds of over 120 miles per hour and is moving west-northwest towards Hawaii.

This weekend could be particularly inclement for High Summer, more like autumn, as a deepening wave moves east on Saturday, with a spell of wet and windy conditions in the morning clearing to heavy thundery showers, while Sunday sees sunny spells and showers in a brisk and cool westerly wind.

Tropical Depression #8 continued to look more impressive on satellite imagery Thursday evening, and combined with Hurricane Hunter data showing tropical storm force winds, the National Hurricane Center upgraded the system to Tropical Storm Hanna.

Authorities have warned the storm could lead to life-threatening flash floods on the Windward Islands if it reaches land.

"Small cyclones like Gonzalo tend to succumb to any type of adverse environmental conditions quite easily, and it's possible that the system could struggle during the next couple of days, the Hurricane Center said".
