Tropical Storm Erika

Tropical Storm Erika has formed in the open Atlantic, east of Antigua and Barbuda, the National Weather Service reported in its 5 p.m. update.

Maximum sustained winds are 50 mph. Some slow strengthening is expected over the next couple of days.

The storm is moving to the west-northwest at 9 mph.

Computer models don't appear to be at a consensus on Erika's future track. Some have it turning north along a route similar to Bill and Danny. Others have it moving in a more westerly fashion.
