In the tropics, powerful Hurricane Sam continues its slow motion to the northwest, and a tropical storm watch is now in effect for Bermuda.  At 5 am, Sam was located near 21.5 North, 59.1 West, about 825 miles south-souteast of Bermuda.  Maximum sustained winds were 145 miles per hour, and Sam was moving northwest at 12 miles per hour.  .

We now have Tropical Storm Victor in the eastern Atlantic.  At 5 am, Victor was located near 8.7 North, 27.3 West, about 550 miles south-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands.  Maximum sustained winds were 45 miles per hour, and Victor was moving west-northwest at 13 miles per hour.  Victor is expected to turn to the northwest and remain in the open Atlantic.

Elsewhere, the wave entering the central Atlantic has a low chance of developing as it is likely to be affected by Tropical Storm Victor.
