Tropical Storm Karen is bearing down on the gulf coast and is headed toward the Carolinas late this weekend.
WBTV's team of meteorologist continues to track the storm. Tropical Storm watches and warnings have been posted along the gulf coast from Louisiana to the Florida panhandle.
By 11 a.m. Friday, the storm had weakened with maximum sustained winds of 50 miles per hour.
The storm is already weaker than earlier anticipated, and will rapidly weaken after it makes landfall, says WBTV Meteorologist Ashley Batey.
Models are still not unified in either track or intensity, but the National Hurricane Center track has Karen as either a strong Tropical Storm or weak Hurricane making landfall on the Alabama/Florida Gulf Coast late Saturday.
