...ELSA VERY NEAR EASTERN CUBA AND JAMAICA...
HEAVY RAINS AND TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS EXPECTED THERE TODAY...
At 5 a.m. EDT, the center of Tropical Storm Elsa was located over the Caribbean Sea about 85 miles (140 km) east of Kingston, Jamaica. It's moving toward the west-northwest near 14 mph (22 km/h). An additional decrease in forward speed is expected later today, followed by a turn toward the northwest tonight or Monday. On the forecast track, Elsa will move away from the southern portion of Haiti during the next couple of hours, and move near Jamaica and portions of eastern Cuba later this morning. By Monday, Elsa is expected to move across central and western Cuba and head toward the Florida Straits. Elsa is then forecast to move near or over portions of the west coast of Florida on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher gusts. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles (205 km) from the center. Some slight strengthening is possible today as Elsa approaches the south-central coast of Cuba. However, gradual weakening is forecast to occur tonight and Monday when Elsa moves across Cuba. After Elsa emerges over the Florida Straits and southeastern Gulf of Mexico, some slight restrengthening is possible.
