Tropical Storm Erika formed late Monday 8/24/15 in the central Atlantic and is currently east of the Leeward Islands.  Tropical storm watches were posted Tuesday morning for parts of the Leeward Islands, and additional watches and or warnings may be required soon.  Erika is expected to remain a tropical storm and slowly gather strength as it moves quickly to the west.  Erika’s future path and strength beyond Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands is unclear, and may include a path near the Bahamas this weekend and perhaps parts of the Southeast U.S. coast next week.  Due to Erika’s accelerated movement, meteorologists are forecasting it to arrive in the northern Leeward islands Wednesday night or early Thursday with potential tropical storm-force winds and heavy rain, prompting tropical storm watches to be issued early Tuesday morning for Montserrat, Antigua, Barbuda, St. Kitts and Nevis, Anguilla, Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Maarten, Guadeloupe, St. Martin and St. Barthelme.
