Fred appeared to pose a threat to South Florida a few days ago and was declared an easterly wave late Saturday morning, but the National Hurricane Center said that a tropical depression or tropical storm will re-form in the Gulf of Mexico on Sunday. The Fred remained chaotic as it bypassed the Cuban coast and moved northwest.

Tropical storm warning in the Florida Keys:

The tropical storm warning in the Florida Keys has ceased. However, watches in the northern Gulf of Mexico can be released within a day or two, including the Florida Panhandle.

At 11 o’clock on Saturday morning, Fred was 125 miles southwest of Key West with a maximum sustained wind speed of 35 mph. Fred is moving west-northwest at a speed of 12 miles per hour, passing west of the Florida Keys on Saturday, and landing on the Gulf Coast on Monday night.

Fred is expected to pass through Key West and may return to tropical storm status at a sustained wind speed of 40 miles per hour.

According to the Miami National Weather Service, heavy rain is expected in South Florida, but the amount of rain is estimated to have been reduced to two to five inches. From southeast Broward County to the islands, parts of South Florida still have winds of 39-57 mph. The area is at risk of flooding and tornadoes.

Jamie Rhome, a meteorologist at the National Hurricane Center, said:

“So much rainfall will only make South Florida an unpleasant weekend.”

“A good opportunity for flood threats. Not a good one. Driving on weekends. The roads can easily accumulate water and cause flooding.”

Fred’s Cone of Uncertainty is moving more westward, so most of Florida has exceeded the expected path, but the latest path suggests that Pensacola may land as a strong tropical storm with a sustained wind speed of 60 miles /Hour with a gust of 70 mph.

On Friday night:

Governor Ron DeSantis issued a state of emergency to the following counties: Bay, Calhoun, Citrus, Dixie, Escambia, Franklin, Gazsen, Gilchrist, Gulf, Sherlock Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Lafayette, Leon, Levy, Liberty, Manatee, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Taylor, Vakula, Walton and Washington counties.

The tempest appears prone to go through the islands and focus on the Florida beg. Albeit most pieces of South Florida can, in any case, be relied upon to have stormy and blustery days from the enormous and wet right half of the tempest on Saturday, the exchange of the tempest to the Bay Area has diminished these dangers.

A guide of the reasonable way of the tempest place moved South Florida out of the center, and the tempest is currently expected to go to Florida’s Gulf Coast.
