Midday Monday tropical forecast: Fred, Grace, and TD8

FOX 13 Tampa Bay – Aug 16, 2021

A strengthening Tropical Storm Fred moved closer to Florida on Monday, just hours away from making landfall in the Panhandle. The National Hurricane Center said wind shear kept Fred from intensifying much overnight, but the storm is now encountering more favorable conditions in the hours before landfall. Tropical Depression Grace was dropping rain over Puerto Rico early Monday and forecast to move over Hispaniola later in the day. And Tropical Depression Eight formed late Sunday near Bermuda, likely to become Tropical Storm Henri.
