Based on current information and analysis, the forecast track of Hurricane Sam places the system sufficiently north of the area to spare the islands tropical cyclone wind impacts; as a result, the system poses a very low threat to the islands at this time. Notwithstanding, it is also necessary to mention that given the dynamic nature of tropical cyclones, shifts in the forecast track are possible which could bring the system closer to the area resulting in an increased threat of tropical cyclone impacts to the islands. For this reason, residents and interests in the Leewards and British Virgin Islands are urged to continue to closely monitor the progress of this potentially dangerous system.

At 500 am AST (0900 UTC), the eye of hurricane Sam was located near latitude 12.8 north, longitude 46.7 west or 1050 miles east-southeast of the Leewards and 饾煆饾煇饾煈饾煐 饾惁饾悽饾惀饾悶饾惉 饾悶饾悮饾惉饾惌 饾惉饾惃饾惍饾惌饾悺饾悶饾悮饾惉饾惌 饾惃饾悷 饾惌饾悺饾悶 饾悂饾惈饾悽饾惌饾悽饾惉饾悺 V饾悽饾惈饾悹饾悽饾惂 I饾惉饾惀饾悮饾惂饾悵饾惉.

Sam continues to move towards the west-northwest near 13 mph (20 km/h).聽 A slower motion to the west-northwest is expected over the weekend, followed by a turn to the northwest on Monday.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 110 mph (155 km/h) with higher gusts. Rapid intensification is forecast as Sam is in a favourable environment and Sam is expected to become a major hurricane later today.

No watches or warnings area required at this time; however residents should guard against complacency and be prepared to activate their hurricane preparedness plans in the event they become necessary.
