Erin remained a weak tropical storm Saturday evening, with maximum sustained winds near 40 miles per hour over the eastern Atlantic Ocean, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said.
Erin was downgraded to a tropical storm Friday at 11 a.m., but returned to tropical storm status Friday night as its maximum sustained winds strengthened, according to the NHC.
As of 5 p.m., Erin was moving northwest at 13 miles per hour about 920 miles northwest of the Cape Verde Islands, the NHC said.
Erin is expected to make a gradual turn toward the west-northwest Saturday night, according to the NHC. The storm is expected to slowly weaken in the next few days.
The storm is not expected to affect South Florida and does not currently pose a threat to land.
There is also an area of low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico that has a 30 percent chance of developing into a tropical cyclone. It is bringing plenty of rain to the Florida panhandle and the Southeast, but is not expected to have an impact on South Florida.
