Ernesto Is in the Caribbean

In the tropics, Ernesto has weakened to a tropical storm because of its interaction with the mountains of Haiti.

Ernesto could regain hurricane strength by late Monday night or early Tuesday.

If Ernesto does not spend too much time over Cuba, it could strengthen quickly again in the Gulf of Mexico.

It is still too early to specify precise locations for landfall in Florida, or what effects it will have on our weather.

The Keys and south Florida will have to deal with Ernesto first. Stay tuned.
