Tropical Storm Erin has Formed

Tropical Storm Erin has Formed


Tropical Storm Erin has formed in the eastern Atlantic, southwest of the Cape Verde Islands.

The storm's maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph as of the 8 a.m. update from the NHC, with additional strengthening forecast during the next few days.

The storm is centered about 65 miles west-southwest of Brava and is moving west-northwest near 16 mph.

According to our Storm Team 5 partners, computer models show Erin remaining at tropical storm strength and eventually breaking up while still in the open Atlantic.

Of course, we'll have to continue watching it, however.
