Storm Summary and Projection:
Hurricane Summary POSTED: September 3, 2015 10:58 p.m. Fred Still A Tropical Storm Heading Toward The Open Central Atlantic Tropical Storm Fred continues moving to the west-northwest through the open waters of the eastern Atlantic Ocean and will pose no threat to land through at least this weekend. While dry air and unfavorable wind shear in the path of Fred should cause the storm to weaken to a tropical depression in the next couple of days, it is holding on for now and producing intermittent bursts of thunderstorms. Should Fred continue to hold tough over the weekend and maintain its surface circulation, it will move into an area where waters are warmer and the upper winds are more favorable. This would allow Fred an opportunity to regain some strength. However, through early next week, Fred or its remnants will stay far from any land mass and will only be a concern for shipping interests. In the event that Fred survives to the middle of next week, it likely will track near or through the Azores, so there is some potential for it to produce squally rains there in several days' time. Erika's small remnant low has moved out over the Atlantic and is east of Brunswick, Georgia. Earlier thunderstorms with this feature have diminished for now, but we will continue to monitor it until it dissipates completely. A surface low will gradually form over the next day or two in the vicinity of Bermuda. A look at projected water temperatures and shear suggests this low pressure area could be over marginally warm water and in an environment of low shear and adequate moisture. If these favorable environmental conditions do set up in and around this developing low pressure area, it's possible this system could eventually transition into a tropical cyclone. All indications are that if a storm like this were to develop it would not impact the United States. A new tropical wave emerging from Africa today will have a chance to develop as it drifts westward in the coming days. Waters over the eastern tropical Atlantic are warmer than usual for early September and upper-level winds are favorable. Another wave currently drifting through Burkina Faso will also have a chance to develop once it reaches the eastern Atlantic this weekend into early next week.
