The National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida, USA, is keeping a watch on a tropical disturbance located off the coast of El Salvador, which could develop into a cyclone off the coast of Quintana Roo

At 1100 AM EST, on Friday, August, 25th, the center of Tropical Storm Franklin was located by an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft near latitude 21.8 North, longitude 67.8 West. Franklin is moving toward the east-southeast near 5 mph (7 km/h), and this motion will gradually become more easterly and northeasterly today.

A sharp turn toward the north, with an increase in forward motion is expected tonight and Saturday, with a northward or
north-northwestward motion over the western Atlantic continuing through early next week.

Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts. Gradual strengthening is forecast by tomorrow, and Franklin will likely become a hurricane over the weekend.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km) from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure from dropsonde data is 1003 mb (29.62 inches).
