โ€At 800 PM AST (0000 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Franklin was located near latitude 14.8 North, longitude 67.8 West which is estimated at 283 miles South-Southwest of the BVI.

Moisture and instability associated with an area of disturbed weather, Tropical Storm Franklin located south of the BVI is forecast to generate unsettled conditions over the next few hours.
