Tropical Storm Elsa is moving past the Florida Keys and with its current forecasted track remaining parallel to the west coast of Florida, weather conditions are expected to begin deteriorating Tuesday afternoon.
Forecasters say Elsa's winds could increase as it nears the Tampa Bay Area, prompting a hurricane watch for much of Florida's west coast from Egmont Key to Steinhatchee River. This includes Pinellas County and the coastal areas of Pasco, Hernando, and Citrus counties.
