Tropical Storm Fred is no threat to United States

Click here for our interactive Tracking Map.

As of Saturday morning, Tropical storm Fred remained a weak tropical storm over the far Eastern Atlantic Ocean. Fred had sustained winds of 40 mph. It is moving to the west-northwest at 10 mph and is moving away from the Cape Verde Islands in the far eastern Atlantic Ocean. It will continue this west to northwesterly track through Saturday then turn more northward thereafter.

Fred is likely to fade away by late weekend as it moves into a less favorable area for maintaining strength.

Fred is currently about 2400 miles from the Carolina coast. Fred is not expected to make it across the Atlantic. Consequently, little or no impact from Fred will be felt along the East Coast.

Another low pressure center south of the Cape Verde Islands has a high chance of forming in to a tropical system within the next 48 hours. If it does form in to a named system, it will be named Grace, the seventh tropical storm of the season.

It does not appear any significant tropical systems will impact our Labor Day Weekend. The beaches will have highs in the middle 80s under partly sunny skies. A stray shower is possible. Northeasterly winds at 10 to 15 knots Friday and Saturday will become easterly by Sunday
