As expected, the tropical system in the Atlantic was designated Tropical Storm Erika in last night's 10pm CDT advisory.  Erika is expected to intensify for the next 3-4 days.  After that, there is disagreement in the intensity model, so we'll just have to wait and see.

As you will see on the tracking map, the current forecast would have Erika turning Northwest and moving toward the East coast of Florida.  That does NOT mean that Erika won't get into the Gulf.  Erika appears to be a little more robust storm than Danny, so she may not fade away so easily.
