Tropical Storm Elsa is here, and it could hit the United States this week.

What is Tropical Storm Elsa?

Tropical Storm Elsa is a storm that has formed in the Atlantic Ocean, according to The Weather Channel. The storm is heading toward the Caribbean, where it will likely hit by Friday.

Will Tropical Storm Elsa hit the United States?

Fox News reports that Tropical Storm Elsa won’t strengthen much. The storm will likely hit land before reaching South Florida and the Gulf of Mexico, which would limit the storm’s strength.

  • Indeed, projections show the storm possibly hitting Florida and the eastern Gulf of Mexico. But that’s a long-term projection. The storm will have land interactions with Puerto Rico and Cuba.
  • “Too much land interaction could disrupt Elsa enough and prevent it from staying intact past the Caribbean,” The Weather Channel reports.

Is this ‘Frozen’ Elsa in real life?

No, but that hasn’t stopped the storm from achieving meme status. The internet has shared some memes of the forthcoming storm, comparing it to Elsa from “Frozen.”
