Forecasters now say Sally could dump isolated amounts of 30 inches of rain along and just inland of the Gulf Coast from the western Florida Panhandle to far southeastern Mississippi.
"On the forecast track, the center of Sally will pass near the coast of southeastern Louisiana today, and make landfall in the hurricane warning area tonight or Wednesday morning."
The current track calls for the eye of the hurricane to hit near Mobile, Alabama.
Southeast Louisiana is now out of the Hurricane Warning area.
Surge there is now forecast to be four to seven feet.
Mobile is bracing for a six to nine foot storm surge.
