GRANDE ISLE Louisiana (Reuters) - The first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season was on track on Saturday to reach the Gulf of Mexico within days, a potential threat to containment and cleanup of the worst ever U.S. oil spill.

For now, Tropical Storm Alex is not expected to pass close to BP Plc.'s blown-out well off the Louisiana coast, but the storm's path is being watched closely.
