BILOXI, Miss. (WLOX) - South Mississippians should prepare for possible tropical weather this weekend as a storm continues to brew in the Gulf of Mexico.

According to the National Hurricane Center, a tropical storm warning has been issued for the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The warning also extends from Intracoastal City, Louisiana, and to the Alabama-Florida border.

The National Hurricane Center upgraded Invest 92L to Potential Tropical Cyclone Three Thursday afternoon. It still has a high chance to become a depression or storm in the Gulf overnight tonight or Friday,

Due to the unorganized nature of this system, it is difficult to say which counties will see the highest totals as it will depend on the overall track of the center, and where heavy rain bands set up.

Sandbags are available for residents in some areas where the potential of flooding is a concern.
