MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Storm Elsa in the central Atlantic.
The storm continues to progress quickly to the west-northwest. Tropical storm advisories have been issued for the Leeward and Windward islands. The storm is forecast to slowly intensify through the end of the week and into the weekend.
Uncertainty increases late in the weekend as the system continue through the Caribbean approaching Hispaniola and Cuba. Long-range models are hinting at a turn to the north. It is way too early to determine where that turn will occur. We’ll continue to keep a close eye on Elsa.
