At 800 AM AST (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Fred was

the Cape Verde Islands by late Monday and into Tuesday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts.
Steady strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Fred
could be near hurricane strength when it moves through the Cape
Verde Islands.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1005 mb (29.68 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach
the coast within the warning area by early Monday, making outside

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