The seventh tropical storm in the Atlantic has officially been named.

The system is brewing about 175 miles (281 kilometers) east-southeast of Marathon in the Florida Keys. The storm is moving at a speed of 15mph with maximum sustained winds of approximately 30mph and stronger gusts.

A hurricane watch - meaning that hurricane conditions are possible - was put into effect for the area stretching from the mouth of the Pearl River in MS to the Alabama-Florida border.

Tropical Storm Gordon, now off the coast of South Florida, will move northwest over the next three days.

A weather system becomes a tropical storm when winds reach 39 miles per hour.
