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.
