  • Tropical Storm Erika formed late Monday night in the central Atlantic and is about 840 miles east of the Leeward Islands.
  • Tropical storm watches were posted early Tuesday morning for parts of the Leeward Islands, and additional watches and or warnings may be required soon.
  • Erika is expected to remain a tropical storm and gather strength as it moves quickly to the west.
  • The northern Leeward Islands may feel tropical storm-force winds by late Wednesday night into early Thursday.
  • Erika may then bring more rain to drought-suffering Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
  • Erika’s future track and intensity beyond Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands is highly uncertain.
