Tracking the Tropics: Tropical Storm Fiona is located east of the Lesser Antilles with winds of 60 mph. It is Fiona will move to the west and into the NE Caribbean on Friday. Once there, the wind shear is expected to be lower, and this could lead to some strengthening. However, it would have to stay over water for it to get stronger. Right now, the forecast track has it moving over the islands with heavy rain and gusty winds. The higher terrain of the islands will likely prevent significant strengthening. By Monday, the models have the system turning NE toward the Bahamas. At this time, it looks like Fiona will stay out of the Gulf, but it could have some impacts to the U.S. East Coast and Bermuda. Once it is back over water it is forecast to become stronger.
