DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 200 AM AST (0600 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Fred was
located near latitude 17.8 North, longitude 25.7 West. Fred is
moving toward the northwest near 10 mph (17 km/h).  A turn toward
the west-northwest is expected later today.  On the forecast track,
the center of Fred will continue to move away from the northwestern
Cape Verde Islands today.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 65 mph (100 km/h)
with higher gusts.  Continued weakening is forecast during the next
48 hours.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 997 mb (29.44 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND:  Tropical storm conditions will affect portions of the
northwestern Cape Verde Islands within the warning area for the next
few hours. Wind speeds atop and on the windward sides of hills and
mountains are often up to 30 percent stronger than indicated in this
advisory, and in some elevated locations can be even greater.

STORM SURGE:  A storm surge is expected to produce coastal flooding
in areas of onshore winds in the Cape Verde Islands.  Near the
coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and dangerous waves.

RAINFALL:  Fred is expected to produce total rain accumulations of
4 to 6 inches over the Cape Verde Islands, with possible isolated
maximum amounts of 10 inches.  These rains are likely to produce
life-threatening flash flooding and mud slides.
