DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 1100 AM AST (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Fred was
located near latitude 13.4 North, longitude 19.9 West. Fred is
moving toward the northwest near 12 mph (19 km/h) and this general
motion is expected to continue through Tuesday.  On the forecast
track, the center of Fred is expected to move through the Cape Verde
Islands on Monday through early Tuesday.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 50 mph (85 km/h)
with higher gusts.  Additional strengthening is expected during the
next day or so, and Fred is forecast to become a hurricane before
reaching the Cape Verde Islands on Monday.

Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1003 mb (29.62 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach
the coast within the warning area by early Monday.  Hurricane
conditions are expected within a portion of the warning area by
Monday afternoon.

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
3 to 5 inches over the Cape Verde Islands, with possible isolated
