Tropical Storm Wanda a little stronger over open Atlantic. Wanda is centered about 800 miles west of the Azores and moving ENE at 8 mph. A turn toward the NE and NNE is expected today, followed by a generally northward motion at a slightly faster forward speed through Wednesday. Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 50 mph with higher gusts. Little change in strength is forecast during the next 48 hours.
A low-pressure system located just offshore the northern coast of Panama is producing some disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the southwestern Caribbean Sea. This system is expected to move west over Central America later today, and significant development is unlikely due to its interaction with land.
