As Tropical Storm Hanna grew a little stronger in the Gulf of Mexico Friday afternoon, its threat to Louisiana remained the possibility of heavy rains moving inland from Hanna's outer bands.

The National Hurricane Center said three to five inches of rain could fall along parts of the Louisiana coast, with one to four inches possible inland. There is a marginal risk of flash flooding for most of south Louisiana through Monday morning.

Forecaster say Hanna could continue to gain strength as it moves towards a landfall along the southern Texas coast on Saturday. A tropical storm warning is in effect from the mouth of the Rio Grande to San Luis Pass.

Further out in the Atlantic, the NHC is now predicting Gonzalo will remain at tropical storm strength as it moves toward the southern Windward Islands, then weakening to a tropical depression by Monday.
