Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Tropical Storm Elsa has formed in the south central Atlantic.  Elsa will arrive in the Caribbean tomorrow and is expected to be near the southeast Gulf of Mexico early next week.  While some strengthening is forecasted, Elsa is not expected to be a hurricane at this time.

While a lot of the models are showing Elsa tracking more towards the eastern Gulf or Florida, it is far too early to have any confidence in track or intensity.  We will continue with daily updates.
