National Weather Service updates timelines, possible impacts of storms Fred & Grace
Published 12:02 am Saturday, August 14, 2021
According to the National Weather Service, Fred has weakened to a tropical wave. However, it could strengthen again on Sunday in the eastern Gulf of Mexico.
Landfall projections have shifted further west, somewhere near Mobile, Alabama, on Monday.
The good news? No impacts are expected in Southeast Texas from Fred.
Tropical Storm Grace is east of the Caribbean.
It will be near the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico on Sunday, and near Haiti and the Dominican Republic on Monday.
This will hamper rescue efforts from the 7.2 earthquake this morning in Haiti.
Grace could eventually get in the eastern Gulf of Mexico by Thursday or Friday.
“Lots of uncertainty that far out. We will continue to monitor,” Warning Coordination Meteorologist Roger Erickson said.
