In the tropics, Sam is already a hurricane in the open Atlantic.  At 5 am, Hurricane Sam was located near 11.5 North, 42.2 West, about 1470 miles east-southeast of the northern Leeward Islands.  Maximum sustained winds were 75 miles per hour, and Sam was moving west at 15 miles per hour.  Sam is expected to undergo rapid intensification and become a major hurricane.  We’ll continue to keep an eye on it. .

Elsewhere, the remnants of Odette have a medium chance of becoming a depression once again.  And an area of disturbed weather east of Bermuda has a low chance of developing early in the weekend before conditions become unfavorable.
