Hurricane Sam is now a major category 4 hurricane. Sam isn’t likely to develop into a category 5, but with the rate it’s been gaining strength a lot could change. It is a bit too soon to know for sure, but as of now this powerful storm is expected to stay out to sea.
Subtropical Storm Teresa is falling apart and has downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone. It is likely to completely dissipate by early Sunday.
We are watching two other areas for possible development. One is from the remnants of Tropical Storm Peter, where there are showers and storms several hundred miles south of Bermuda. Chance of development: 10% over 48 hours, 20% over 5 days. There is also a wave expected to emerge of the coast of Africa by Monday. Chance of development: 0% over 48 hours, 60% over 5 days.
