Tropical Depression 18 strengthened Thursday morning to Tropical Storm Sam.
It’s the 18th named storm of the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season. Sam is forecast to strengthen into a hurricane on Friday.
Chief Meteorologist Mike Buresh says, " The jury is still out on how far west this one might make it but heads up for parts of the Caribbean in a week or so. It *might* still be a little early on the re-orientation of the steering currents to bring this wave real far to the west, but it’s not a sure thing.”
