In the tropics, Hurricane Sam is zipping into colder waters in the northern Atlantic.  At 5 am Monday, Sam was located near 465 miles south-southeast of Cape Race, Newfoundland.  Maximum sustained winds of 105 miles per hour, and Sam was moving northeast at 30 miles per hour.  Sam is expected to transition into a strong post-tropical low on Tuesday.

Elsewhere, Tropical Depression Victor is barely hanging on about 1500 miles west of the Cape Verde Islands.  At 5 am, maximum sustained winds were 30 miles per hour, and Victor is expected to become a remnant low later on Monday.  And we’re also watching an area of showers east of the southeastern Bahamas that has a low chance of developing as it moves slowly to the northwest during the next five days.  This feature should remain east of Florida and the northeastern Bahamas, but it may increase our rain chances later this week.
