Meteorologists expect Tropical Storm Sally to become a hurricane today as the storm approaches the central Gulf Coast. After the storm makes landfall early in the week, forecasters say it should weaken and what’s left of the storm will likely bring higher rain chances to north Georgia by the end of the week. Sally is the 18th named storm to develop this hurricane season in the Atlantic.

Forecasters from the National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sally is expected to become a hurricane on Monday and reach shore by early Tuesday, bringing dangerous weather conditions, including risk of flooding, to a region stretching from Morgan City, Louisiana, to Ocean Springs, Mississippi.
There are still some 5,400 members of Louisiana’s National Guard mobilized from Laura, and they will assist with Sally.
