Tropical Depression Fred continued to struggle Saturday morning as it skirted the coast of Cuba, and forecasters say the system’s eventual impact on Florida will be less than first feared.
The National Hurricane Center said interaction with Cuba had “significantly disrupted” Fred’s circulation and nearly ripped it apart. Still, they expect Fred to re-strengthen as it enters the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico today.
Tropical Storm Grace became the seventh named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season early Saturday with winds of 40 mph, moving west at 22 mph.
