SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

Grace formed into a tropical storm on Saturday afternoon. Tropical Storm Grace has steadily continued to strengthen over the last 12 hours.

On Sunday morning, Tropical Storm Grace had max winds of 45 miles per hour and a minimum pressure of 1004 millibars.  

More intensification of Grace is expected over the next two to three days as the storm will move westward into an environment that is generally favorable for development. After that, it may weaken.

"By late week, Grace will enter a less tropical-storm-friendly environment," explained WLOX Meteorologist Wesley Williams. "Dry air and strong wind shear should work to weaken Tropical Storm Grace around Thursday into Friday. Grace is expected to be east of the Lesser Antilles by the end of the week.

"No impacts along the Gulf Coast are expected with Tropical Storm Grace at this time," commented Williams. "It's simply too early to tell. The WLOX 24/7 Weather Team will continue to monitor this system as it treks west this week."
