Tropical Storm Elsa is racing up the U.S. east coast.  At 5 am Friday, Elsa was located near 39.4 North, 74.3 West, about 5 miles east of Atlantic City, New Jersey.  Maximum sustained winds were 50 miles per hour, and Elsa was zipping northeast at 31 miles per hour.  Tropical storm warnings are in effect from New Jersey to Massachusetts, and an already saturated Tristate area will see another 2 to 4 inches of rain, with up to 6 inches in some locations.  Elsa will finally lose its tropical characteristics and weaken when it reaches the Canadian Maritimes early on Saturday.
