The latest update from the National Hurricane Center shows Tropical Storm Elsa passing over South Carolina late Wednesday into Thursday.

Here’s the latest forecast information

500 PM EDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Elsa was located near latitude 19.8 North, longitude 77.9 West. Elsa is moving toward the northwest near 14 mph (22 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue through Monday followed by a turn toward the north-northwest on Tuesday.

On the forecast track, Elsa will continue to move near or over eastern Cuba this evening, and approach central Cuba tonight and early Monday. Elsa is expected to move across central and western Cuba and head toward the Florida Straits on Monday and pass near the Florida Keys early Tuesday.

Elsa is then forecast to move near or over portions of the west coast of Florida on Tuesday and Wednesday. Maximum sustained winds are near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts. Some strengthening is expected before Elsa moves over Cuba, followed by some weakening while the center moves over land. Slight restrengthening is possible after Elsa moves over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles (150 km) from the center. The estimated minimum central pressure is 1009 mb (29.80 inches)
