Fay is on track to cross over Cuba as a tropical storm, and eventually strengthen. Here is a report from Reuters:

HAVANA, Aug 17 (Reuters) - Tropical Storm Fay churned along Cuba's southeastern coast on Sunday with 50 mile per hour (80 km per hour) winds and was expected to hit land overnight before heading toward Florida as a likely hurricane.

The storm was just off Cuba's lightly populated Cabo Cruz, which juts out into the Caribbean Sea, and moving northwest at 13 miles per hour (20 km per hour), the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Florida said.
