near latitude 36.2 North, longitude 92.3 West. The low was
moving toward the north-northeast near 8 mph (13 km/h), and is
expected to pick up speed while turning more northeasterly later
tonight and on Saturday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 10 mph (20 km/h) with higher gusts.
Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours as the

baroclinic frontal boundary.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1012 mb (29.89 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL: Gordon and its transition to an extra-tropical low
could produce total rain accumulations of 3 to 6 inches over
Missouri into the Midwest, with possible isolated maximum amounts of
10 inches through Monday. This rainfall will likely cause local
flooding and flash flooding.
