BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A tropical storm is expected to form today in the far eastern Atlantic. If it does, the name Victor is the next up for this active hurricane season. The system is marked by the red X and oval on the map above.

A second system, marked by the orange X and oval, is also expected to form over the next few days, but forecasters believe its ability to grow will be hindered.

For all systems, the oval represents where a system may form, not necessarily a direction of travel. It is far too early for either system to be a concern for anyone on the United States mainland.

Meantime, Sam remains a very strong hurricane with 120 MPH winds, but its direction of travel remains no threat to the United States East Coast.

This is the early morning update for Wednesday from the National Hurricane Center:

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane 
Sam, located several hundred miles east of the northern Leeward 

1. Shower and thunderstorm activity associated with an area of 
low pressure located several hundred miles south of the Cabo
Verde Islands continues to gradually become better organized.  
Environmental conditions are conducive for additional development, 
and a tropical depression or tropical storm is likely to form later 
today or tonight while the disturbance moves west-northwestward at 
10 to 15 mph over the eastern tropical Atlantic.  Additional 
information on this system, including gale warnings, can be found 
in High Seas Forecasts issued by Meteo France. 
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...90 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent.

2. Showers and thunderstorms remain disorganized in association with a 
a broad and elongated area of low pressure located several hundred 
miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. Although environmental 
conditions are generally conducive for development during the next 
day or so, interaction of this system with the low pressure area 
located to its east is likely to hinder development after that time. 
The system is forecast to drift west-northwestward over the next 
few days.  
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.

3. An area of low pressure associated with the remnants of Peter is 
located several hundred miles east-northeast of Bermuda. Recent 
satellite wind data indicate that the circulation of the low has 
become less defined, and shower activity remains limited. The system 
is moving northeastward into a region of very strong upper-level 
winds, and significant development of this system is no longer 
anticipated.  Additional information on this system can be found in 
High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent.
