CURRENT SITUATION

Elsa has been downgraded to a Tropical Storm with maximum sustained winds of 70 mph. Elsa is located south of Hispaniola, approximately 1200 miles southeast of Tampa. Elsa is moving quickly toward the west-northwest near 29 mph, and this motion is expected to continue during the next couple of days. Confidence has increased in Elsa’s movement into the eastern Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday as a strong tropical storm.

No watches or warnings associated with the storm are in effect for Florida at this time. There is a risk of storm surge, wind and rainfall impacts in the Florida Keys and portions of the Florida Peninsula early next week. However, uncertainty remains larger than usual concerning Elsa’s strength due to potential interaction with Cuba on Monday.
