Atlantic Basin - Active Storms
AccuWeather Atlantic Basin Overview
Hurricane Summary POSTED: August 29, 2015 9:43 a.m. Erika Weakens to a Tropical Rainstorm Tropical Storm Erika weakened this morning to a tropical rainstorm just off the coast of Cuba. Tropical Rainstorm Erika will continue to move west-northwest this morning and will move inland across northeastern Cuba with heavy rain and winds expected across eastern and central Cuba today and tonight. Tropical Rainstorm Erika will push off the Cuban coast tomorrow morning and into the Florida Straits. Heavy rainfall of 2-4 inches will fall across eastern and central Cuba today with some 4- to 8-inch amounts possible in the highest terrain. Although the rain will be beneficial due to the long-term drought in this region, there can be deadly flash flooding and mudslides. Heavy rain will spread north across the southern Bahamas and South Florida on Sunday into Monday where several inches is likely and flooding is possible. Tropical Rainstorm Erika should track to the northwest across the Florida Keys on Sunday night and then slow down as it tracks northward in the eastern Gulf of Mexico, just west of Florida on Tuesday. This should spread heavy rain to the north across the peninsula, especially across the western half. A large tropical wave about halfway between the Lesser Antilles and Africa is causing numerous showers and some thunderstorms. It is moving into an area of unfavorable wind shear, so any development will be slow. By AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Michael LeSeney and updated by Meteorologist Steve Travis
