Track of Erika

At 11:00 PM AST (0300 UTC), the center of the remnant low associated with former Tropical Depression Erika was located about 115 miles (185 km) south-southeast of San Juan, Puerto Rico and about 220 miles (360 km) southeast of Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. Here, the coast of Venezuela can be seen south of the low.

The low is moving toward the west near 7 mph (11 km/hr). A gradual turn to the west-northwest and northwest is expected on Friday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 30 mph (45 km/hr) with higher gusts in a few squalls. The low is forecast to dissipate in a day or so. Estimated minimum central pressure is 1009 mb (29.80 inches).

The remnants of Erika are expected to produce total rainfall accumulations of 2 to 4 inches over the central and northern Lesser Antilles, Puerto Rico, and the US and British Virgin Islands, with isolated maximum amounts of 6 inches possible.

As of 5:00 AM AST (0900 UTC) the poorly-defined center of Tropical Storm Erika was estimated to be about 280 miles (455 km) east-southeast of the northern Leeward Islands.

Here, the islands are obscured; however, the mouth of the Amazon River and the northern coasts of Suriname, French Guiana and Brazil are visible south of the storm in the full image

Erika has been moving generally westward near 5 mph (7 km/hr) and a west-northwestward motion at a slightly faster forward speed is expected over the next day or two.

On the forecast track the center will pass near or over the northern Leeward Islands during the next day or so. Tropical storm warnings have been issued for Antigua, Barbuda, Montserrat, St. Kitts, Nevis, Anguilla, St. Maarten, Saba and St. Eustatius.

Erika is expected to produce total rainfall accumulations of 2 to 4 inches over the northern Leeward Islands during the next couple of days, with possible isolated maximum amounts of 6 inches.

Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/hr) with higher gusts. Some strengthening is possible during the next 24 hours. Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 120 miles (195 km) mainly to the northeast of the center. Minimum central pressure is reportedly around 1005 mb (29.68 inches).
