Mobile, Ala. (WKRG) – As of 10 AM Wednesday, Tropical Depression 20 has formed in the eastern Atlantic. Winds are at 35 mph with gusts up 45 mph. The system is moving WNW at 14 mph.

The latest NHC path has TD 20 becoming Tropical Storm Victor later today into Thursday and a hurricane Friday morning. It is expected to stay in the Atlantic. This is currently not a threat to our area or the United States.

Elsewhere in the tropics, Hurricane Sam is still a major hurricane and is expected to stay that way through Saturday as it curves into the Atlantic well east of the United States. It is forecast to weaken as it moves into the cooler waters of the northern Atlantic early next week. The remnants of Peter has a chance for development earlier this week, but thanks to wind shear, it is fizzling out. The other two areas we are watching are off the coast of Africa. The first has a low chance for development while the second is now Tropical Depression 20.
