In the Tropics:
While there is activity in the Atlantic basin, none of it is a threat to the local area.
Hurricane Sam is holding on to category 2 status. Winds are currently at 105 mph and is moving northeast at 30 mph. Sam is expected continue into the north Atlantic.
Victor is now a tropical depression with winds near 30 mph and is moving west-northwest at 14 mph. It is expected to fizzle out in the next day or so.
A large area of disorganized cloudiness and showers continues over the southeastern Bahamas and adjacent southwestern Atlantic waters in association with a surface trough. Upper-level winds are not expected to be especially conducive, and any development of this system should be slow to occur while it moves slowly northwestward through late this weekend.
