Hurricane Lee, a Category 2 storm, has taken the expected shift to the north. It will pass west of Bermuda on Thursday and approach the coast of New England and Atlantic Canada on Friday and Saturday as a weaker storm.

In the 11 p.m. National Hurricane Center update, Lee had maximum sustained winds of 105 mph and was moving north-northwest at 9 mph. Lee was about 345 miles south-southwest of Bermuda and about 920 miles south of Nantucket, Massachusetts.


Lee will bring large swells to Florida's east coast this weekend with seas occasionally as high as 10 feet.

As a weak front moves into North Florida, moisture will pool across South Florida and our rain chances increase from Friday into the weekend.

Hurricane Margot is not expected to move much over the next several days as it sits and spins out in the Atlantic Ocean. Swells from Margot will be impacting the Azores Islands.

In the 11 p.m. update, Margot had maximum sustained winds of 85 mph and was traveling 7 mph northwest. Margot was about 770 miles west-southwest of the Azores.

We're still tracking Invest 97 in the tropical Atlantic. It has a 90% chance of forming in the next seven days and will likely become a depression by this weekend. Models right now curve it north well before it approaches the United States.
