NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
800 AM EDT SUN AUG 30 2015
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on recently
upgraded Tropical Storm Fred, located a few hundred miles
east-southeast of the southernmost Cape Verde Islands in the far
eastern Atlantic Ocean.
1. A trough of low pressure associated with the remnants of Erika is
producing areas of heavy rain over portions of south Florida, the
Florida Keys, and Cuba. Although there are no signs of
redevelopment at this time, upper-level winds could become
marginally favorable for tropical cyclone formation over the next
day or so. Regardless of this system's prospects for regeneration,
locally heavy rains and gusty winds are expected to spread
northwestward and then northward across Florida and the eastern Gulf
of Mexico later today and Monday. Additional information on this
system can be found in marine forecasts and local forecast products
issued by the National Weather Service and the meteorological
service of Cuba.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent
