Fred strengthens into a Hurricane in eastern Atlantic
Fred is the farthest east on record for a hurricane, and 1 of only 5 to form in this general part of the tropics. Only 2 other hurricanes have tracked through the Cape Verde Islands: Hurricane #5 in 1892 and Hurricane Debbie in 1961.
Travis Herzog's weather forecast
Gulf Moisture will push in from the south today, bringing rain showers to our coastal counties during the latter half of the morning and into Houston during the afternoon.
