As of this afternoon, around 2pm EST, Tropical Storm Fay was maintaining wind speeds of 50 mph located around 28.6N 80.6 W. Still over Florida, evident by the image seen below, Fay had been dumping much less precipitation on Florida as the days previous. Most of the rainfall now falls to the North/Northeast region of the storm and will continue through most of this evening. Fay is expected to move slightly over water where marginally warmer SSTs and upper level winds will help strengthen the storm slightly before moving back to the Northwest over land where it will start its decent into nonexistence. We will have to keep a close eye on this storm to see if it moves West enough to bring it back over the northern Gulf.
