Tropical Storm Elsa forms in the Atlantic

Tropical Storm Elsa has formed in the Atlantic Ocean. The storm is projected to impact the Caribbean Islands this weekend. As of 5AM on July 1st the storm had maximum sustained winds of 40 MPH.

The storm track has heavy rain and winds moving into portions of the Windward and southern Leeward Islands by Friday morning.

On Saturday Elsa could move into the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, Cuba, the Turks and Caicos, and the southeastern Bahamas by early next week.

While it is too early to be certain, those who live in Florida should keep an eye on the storm's track as it could impact the state closer to Tuesday next week.
