Tropical Storm Wanda continues its slow trek through the central Atlantic.  At 5 am, Wanda was located near 38.0 North, 40.0 West, about 700 miles west of the Azores.  Maximum sustained winds were holding steady at 50 miles per hour, and Wanda is now moving north-northeast at 8 miles per hour.  Wanda is forecast to loop around in the open ocean and finally accelerate into colder waters late in the weekend.
