Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From News.yahoo.com: “Sally roars through Gulf, forecast to strengthen to hurricane before striking coast”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Hurricane and tropical storm warnings were in effect Sunday for a swath of the northern Gulf Coast as Tropical Storm Sally gathered strength before she's projected to make landfall as a hurricane late Monday or early Tuesday.

"With very warm water across the northeastern Gulf and relatively light vertical wind shear, Tropical Storm Sally is expected to have enough time to strengthen" before reaching the coast, AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Adam Douty said.

Sally could strengthen to a Category 2 hurricane before making landfall somewhere between southeastern Louisiana and the Mississippi-Alabama border, the Hurricane Center said.

Gusts in some areas could reach 120 mph, AccuWeather said. Widespread wind gusts of 40 mph to 60 mph were expected from the Florida Panhandle to eastern Louisiana. Gusts that strong already were blasting some areas Sunday.

The National Weather Service issued hurricane and tropical storm warnings for  southeastern Louisiana, coastal Mississippi and Alabama, and part of the Florida Panhandle.
