Tropical Storm Nigel has winds of 70 mph and is expected to strengthen into a hurricane overnight, then a major hurricane on Tuesday, according to the 11 p.m. update.

Nigel was moving north-northwest at 12 mph, and was about 990 miles east-southeast of Bermuda.

Computer models keep this storm out to sea it and does not pose a threat to land.

Nigel will produce big swells by the end of the work week — next weekend, which will make way for hazardous beach and boating conditions across the East Coast.

Tropical Storm Margot is no longer a tropical cyclone with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph in the 11 a.m. and final update. Margot was about 885 miles west of The Azores.

A wave is expected to emerge off the coast of Africa where it has a 50% chance of formation over the next seven days.

A non-tropical area of low pressure could form near the Southeast coast of the United States late this week. It could acquire some subtropical characteristics if it remains offshore. Formation chances through seven days: 20%.
