Hurricane Summary POSTED: August 31, 2015 11:04 p.m. Fred Weakens To A Tropical Storm And Is Pushing Out of The Cape Verde Islands Torrential rain and damaging winds have been lashing the Cape Verde Islands Monday into Monday Night and are beginning to exit the northwestern islands to the northwest. Hurricane Fred has now been downgraded to a tropical storm and is located about 55 miles north of Santo Antao in the Cape Verde Islands late Monday evening EDT. Tropical Storm Fred's heavy rain and strong winds have led to deadly flash flooding, mudslides and strong winds that has brought down power lines. High surf and strong rip currents have also been creating life-threatening conditions. The worst conditions which have affected the northwestern islands of Sao Nicolau, Sao Vicente and Santo Antao will improve greatly late Monday Night and especially on Tuesday. Hurricane warnings have been lowered to Tropical Storm Warnings for the northwestern islands of Sao Vicente, Sao Nicolau, Santo Antao and Santa Luzia with all warnings discontinued for the rest of the Cape Verde Islands. Drier air and stronger wind shear is located just north of the Cape Verde Islands and eventually these environmental conditions are already having a negative impact on the tropical cyclone. Fred will continue to gradually weaken Tuesday through the end of the week. Once Fred moves away from the islands, there will be no further impacts to land through at least the end of this week. Meanwhile, a definable circulation center is no longer evident with Tropical Rainstorm Erika. However, abundant tropical moisture remains across the region and heavy rainfall will continue across parts of Florida and the southeastern United States for the next couple of days. This includes parts of Georgia and eastern parts of South Carolina and North Carolina. This can result in flash flooding in some locations. Elsewhere, there are no immediate concerns for tropical development. Updated By AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Jack Boston
