Tropical Storm Gordon continued its push toward the northern Gulf Coast and is expected to make landfall by Tuesday night as a hurricane, according to forecasters.

Tropical storm warnings were issued for portions of south Florida and the Keys overnight after the National Hurricane Center upgraded the seventh Atlantic tropical system of the year to Tropical Storm Gordon.
