There still is uncertainty on the track once Ernesto enters the Gulf of Mexico.
Tropical Storm Florence developed in the Atlantic Ocean this morning about 415 miles west of the southernmost Cape Verde Islands.
Florence has a maximum sustained wind of 45 MPH and is moving west northwest at 16 MPH.
Forecast models show Florence to weaken to a Tropical Depression by the middle of next week.
