The system is several hundred miles east-northeast of Bermuda and is moving east at 12 mph.

The tropical storm is anticipated to turn toward the northeast at a faster rate during the next two days.

Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Martin is expected to become a hurricane by Wednesday night before transitioning to a powerful extratropical system on Thursday.

This comes a day after Tropical Storm Lisa formed in the Caribbean Sea.
