MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- The latest named storm in the Atlantic hurricane season may bring back memories of flooding in north Florida, but this year's version of Fay will not bring those same conditions back to the Sunshine State.

Subtropical Storm Fay -- a system that carries a mix of warm and cool air features in its circulation -- is moving north-northwest at 12 mph with highest sustained winds of 40 mph.

The center of the storm is located 525 miles south of Bermuda.  The forecast path will take Fay on a northerly course through the weekend, perhaps brushing near Bermuda by Sunday, before encountering faster upper-level winds which will likely cause the storm to weaken.  Modest strengthening is possible in the next 24 hours.

The forecast track keeps Fay clear of the U.S. east coast, and no threat exists to the Big Bend region.
