As we head into the weekend, KATC has just released new information on Tropical Storm Karen.

From KATC :

Winds now 50mph. The new track is very similar to the earlier forecast, perhaps slightly west. A Tropical Storm WARNING is now in effect from Morgan City eastward to the mouth of the Pearl River. This is an upgrade from a Watch that was in effect earlier in the day.
