Gustav and Hanna On Friday

Tropical storms Gustav and Hanna continue to move through the Caribbean and Atlantic. The enhanced NOAA satellite picture below shows their early Friday morning positions.

The box in the lower right shows the general direction the storms will be traveling over the next few days.

It appears Gustav is headed for the north Gulf coast around Louisiana, making landfall as a category 2 or 3 hurricane late Monday.

Hanna is expected to become a category 1 hurricane, traveling northwest for a while and then turning sharply to the southwest, eventually approaching the Bahamas as a tropical storm on Tuesday.

Check our Hurricane Tracker at for the latest information.

Locally, the remnants of Fay are still moving across the area with clouds and periods of drizzle and light rain the dominant features. On Saturday a cool front will push all of the moisture eastward and it looks like rain will be out of the picture for Sunday and Monday.
