The National Hurricane Center says Tropical Storm Elsa has developed in the Atlantic.
Tropical Storm Elsa currently has sustained winds of 44 mph. It is about 680 miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands. The storm is moving west at 28 mph.
Models vary on how much this system develops as it tracks across the Caribbean. Some forecast models strengthen the system and track it toward Hispaniola and Cuba, while other forecast models weaken it.
As far as potential Florida impacts, it’s still too early as the track and intensity of Elsa is still uncertain. If it survives its track through the Caribbean, it could potentially get into the Gulf of Mexico early next week. https://bit.ly/3ydof26
