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).

the coast within the warning area by early Monday.  Hurricane
conditions are expected within a portion of the warning area by
