    Emily initially made landfall near Tampa Monday as a tropical storm. Since then, Emily has traveled over land and has weakened to a Tropical Depression.

    The center of Emily will continue to move away from the east-central coast of Florida Tuesday. Currently there are no tropical watches or warnings in place.

    Emily is moving northeast at 14 mph with sustained winds of 30 mph. On this current path the storm will move and remain well off the southeast U.S. coast, that is where the core of heavy rain will stay.

    Emily may strengthen slightly before Wednesday. Later, the storm will move into an area of increased wind shear, the storm will weaken once again. Emily is expected to become an extratropical storm or dissipate altogether by Thursday or Friday.
