In addition to the tropical storm watch in effect for southeast Louisiana due to Potential Tropical Cyclone Seven, the National Hurricane Center added a storm surge watch from the Mississippi-Alabama border westward to the mouth of the Mississippi River.
A potential storm surge from the system could be anywhere from 1 to 4 feet.
Forecasters still expect the system will develop into a tropical storm by Monday night. The next name on the list is Gordon.
Heavy rains and tropical storm conditions are possible by Tuesday night into Wednesday.
