MIAMI (CBSMiami) –
Tropical Storm Erin continued to move away from the Cape Verde Islands on Thursday.
At 11 p.m., the center of the system was about 340 miles west of the Cape Verde Islands. The storm had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph as it moved to the west-northwest near 15 mph.
The position of the storm has been moved several hundred miles north, however, the newest computer models now show Tropical Storm Erin as a remnant low in a few days.
This general motion is expected to continue with some decrease in forward speed during the next couple of days. Some additional strengthening is expected before the storm shows signs of weakening again.
There are no watches or warnings posted for this storm.
