Tropical Storm Olga formed Friday evening south of the Louisiana coast in the Gulf of Mexico.
The system formed 260 miles south of Lake Charles, La., and has winds at 50 mph. It is moving north northeast at 17 mph as of 11 p.m. Friday.

Saturday will bring similar conditions before the big change arrives Sunday, Gardner said.
The day will start off dry but precipitation could arrive during the mid-morning and into the afternoon.
"We'll have a dry Saturday and a wetter Sunday," Gardner said, adding that the system could bring a half-inch to an inch of rain.
