In the tropics, Tropical Depression # 7 is now Tropical Storm Fiona. At 5 am, Fiona was located near 16.6 North, 53.0 West, about 580 miles east of the Leeward Islands, where there are now tropical storm watches. Maximum sustained winds were 50 miles per hour, and Fiona was moving west at 13 miles per hour. Fiona is forecast to move through the Leeward Islands on Friday. Watches and warnings are likely for the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico later today. Computer models are not yet in agreement on Fiona’s track after the weekend. We’ll need to keep a close eye on Fiona during the coming days.
