In the tropics, powerful Hurricane Sam has intensified overnight.  At 5 am, Sam was located near 17.2 North, 53.9 West, about 610 miles east of the northern Leeward Islands.  Maximum sustained winds were130 miles per hour, and Sam was moving northwest at 9 miles per hour. There are no watches or warnings at this time, but Sam could bring rough weather to Bermuda on Friday into Saturday.

Elsewhere, the remnants of Peter have a medium chance of redeveloping into a depression on Tuesday before conditions become unfavorable.  We’re watching a strong wave in the far eastern Atlantic which has a high chance of becoming a depression during the next five days.  And an area of low pressure approaching the central Atlantic also has a high chance of developing in the next five days.
