Tropical Depression Eighteen is now Tropical Storm Sam – Here’s the latest

Hurricane Tracker

Live Interactive VIPIR Radar

Tropical Storm Sam was upgraded from Tropical Depression 18, late this morning, and it could become a Category 1 Hurricane by tomorrow! Current sustained winds are at 50 mph for now, but earlier this morning, they were only at 35 mph. This shows how strong this storm is getting and how quickly. We could see this become a major hurricane by the middle of next week. It is currently too soon to know for sure what path Sam will take, but it does look like it will effect at least the western Caribbean.

We are also looking at the north Atlantic where another broad area of low pressure, could be forming into the next tropical depression.
