In the tropics, Florence is now a tropical storm but is expected to re-strengthen. At 5 am Friday, Florence was located near 25.1 North, 50.7 West, and was moving west at 7 miles per hour. Maximum sustained winds were 65 miles per hour. Florence will be moving out of an area of strong wind shear and potentially threaten Bermuda or the U.S. coast from the Carolinas northward after the middle of next week.
