TROPICS: Previously referred to as “Potential Tropical Cyclone Three,” the system was upgraded to Tropical Storm Claudette in the early morning hours as the center of the storm was about 45 miles southeast of New Orleans. Claudette is expected to produce heavy rainfall and life-threatening flash flooding across coastal Mississippi and Alabama, and the far western Florida Panhandle through the afternoon. Considerable flash, urban, and small stream flooding, will continue through the weekend along the central Gulf Coast, with flood impacts spreading northeastward into interior portions of the Southeast.
