Subtropical Storm Wanda is battling wind shear as it gets ready to turn to the northeast.  At 5 am, Wanda was located near 34.5 North, 39.9 West, and was moving southeast at 7 miles per hour in the open Atlantic.  Maximum sustained winds were holding steady at 50 miles per hour.

Elsewhere, the low in the eastern Atlantic has a low chance of becoming a depression as it approaches an area of strong upper-level winds that will limit development.
