In the tropics, powerful Hurricane Sam is moving away from Bermuda, and the tropical storm warning there has been dropped.  At 5 am, Sam was located near 32.8 North, 60.5 West, about 255 miles east of Bermuda.  Maximum sustained winds were 130 miles per hour, and Sam was moving north-northeast at 17 miles per hour.  Sam will gradually weaken as it accelerates into colder waters, but its swells are being felt from the Leeward Islands to South Florida and the rest of the U.S. east coast.

In the eastern Atlantic, Tropical Storm Victor is weakening and should be a remnant low in the open ocean by Monday.  At 5 am Saturday, Victor was located near 12.8 North, 36.3 West.  Maximum sustained winds were 50 miles per hour.  Victor was moving west-northwest at 13 miles per hour, but it’s expected to turn to the northwest this weekend.
