Remnants of Erika continue toward the Gulf of Mexico

As of Saturday evening, the remnants of Erika continue to stay below tropical storm strength. The center is near northern Cuba and central Bahamas. Winds remain at 35 mph.

The remnants are expected to move west-northwestward reaching the southeastern Gulf of Mexico Sunday afternoon.

There is the possibility that the system could reorganize and restrengthen once it reaches the Gulf of Mexico late Sunday into Monday. Regardless of regeneration, heavy rain and gusty winds are expected across the Bahamas and southern and central Florida during the next couple of days.
