Storm Summary and Projection:
Hurricane Summary POSTED: September 1, 2015 5:44 a.m. Fred Still a Tropical Storm and Moving Away from the Cape Verde Islands Tropical Storm Fred is gradually moving away from the Cape Verde Islands to the northwest. Fred's heavy rain and strong winds have led to deadly flash flooding, mudslides and have brought down power lines. High surf and strong rip currents have also been creating life-threatening conditions. Some strong winds, heavy rain and rough surf will continue across the northwestern island this morning, but conditions will improve as the day goes on as Fred moves away from the islands. Tropical storm warnings for the northwestern islands of Sao Vicente, Sao Nicolau, Santo Antao and Santa Luzia, but all other warnings have been discontinued for the rest of the Cape Verde Islands. Drier air and stronger wind shear is located just north of the Cape Verde Islands and these environmental conditions will act to weaken the tropical storm further through the end of the week. Once Fred moves away from the islands, there will be no further impacts to land through at least the end of this week. Meanwhile, heavy rainfall will continue across parts of Florida and the southeastern United States for the next couple of days as moisture once associated with Erika sits over the region. This includes parts of Georgia and eastern parts of South Carolina and North Carolina. This can result in flash flooding in some locations. Elsewhere, there are no immediate concerns for tropical development. By AccuWeather Meteorologist Steve Travis
