11am Tropical Storm Erika Update

11am Update on Erika: Still a tropical storm with sustained winds of 50 mph. Erika is moving WNW at 18 mph. Pressure has risen very slightly to 1008 mb.

The long range path of Erika is being closely monitored by us as it could impact our area next week. there is still plenty of time for the forecast to change. Even as a tropical storm, or remnants of a tropical storm, we could see very heavy rainfall (up to 5″ locally) and gusty winds of over 40 mph on Tuesday and Wednesday.

We’ll keep you updated this weekend and into next week.
