The Atlantic Basin is very busy with three named storms to track in the tropics!

Tropical Storm Fred made landfall in Cape San Blas, in the Florida Panhandle, with 65 mph. winds.

Fred is no longer our problem in SW Florida, as it moves away from Florida. The storm will move into Alabama & Georgia tonight before dissipating over the Appalachians later this week.

Meanwhile, Tropical Depression Grace is passing near Hispaniola tonight.

Grace is expected to restrengthen to a tropical storm by tomorrow as it moves into the NW Caribbean over the next few days, and by this weekend, Grace could become a hurricane in the Bay of Campeche. The good news is Grace will stay well to the south of the WINK viewing area.

Also in the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Henri has formed SE of Bermuda.

Henri will meander around Bermuda in the central Atlantic over the next several days, but is expected to stay out to sea, and poses no threat to the United States.

Otherwise, no additional tropical storms are expected to form over the next five days in the Atlantic Basin.
