Don's winds up to 50 mph; not expected to hit hurricane strength before landfall

Tropical Storm Don is not expected to become a hurricane prior to its expected landfall along the Texas coast.

In its 11 p.m. advisory, the National Hurricane Center in Miami says Don's maximum sustained winds increased slightly to 50 mph. Only slight strengthening is forecast before the storm makes landfall on the Texas coast late Friday or Saturday.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for the coast from the mouth of the Rio Grande to San Luis Pass.
The storm is centered about 370 miles southeast of Corpus Christi, Texas, and is moving west-northwest at 14 mph. Tropical storm-force winds extend 100 miles out from the center.
