At 800 AM AST (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Fiona was located by an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft near latitude 16.1 North, longitude 63.4 West.
Fiona is moving toward the west near 13 mph (20 km/h). A westward to west-northwestward motion with a decrease in forward speed is expected through Sunday night. A turn toward the northwest is forecast early next week.
On the forecast track, the center of Fiona is expected to pass 144 miles south of Anegada, 123 miles south of Virgin Gorda and 120 miles south of Road Town about 2 pm today. Some gust may pick up and be felt more in certain areas especially those that live in hilly areas.
The greatest threat to the BVI remains flooding rains. Due to these heavy rainfalls, flash flooding warning and or advisory may be issued.
Maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts. Some strengthening is forecast, and Fiona could be at or near hurricane strength when it moves near Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic late Saturday or early Sunday morning.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles (205 km) from the center.
Data from the Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that the minimum central pressure is 1000 mb (29.53 inches).
