Tropical Update
Historic flooding is possible from Sally through Wednesday along the northern Gulf Coast. Sally is centered about 105 miles SSE of Biloxi, Mississippi and moving slowly NW. On the forecast track, the center of Sally will move near the coast of southeastern Louisiana today and make landfall tonight or Wednesday morning near Mississippi and Alabama.
Maximum sustained winds are near 85 mph with higher gusts. Although little change in strength is forecast until landfall occurs, Sally is still expected to be a dangerous hurricane when it moves onshore along the north-central Gulf coast.

Hurricane Paulette accelerating away from Bermuda. Paulette is centered about 405 miles NE of Bermuda and moving NE. A faster motion toward the NE or ENE is expected during the next couple of days. Paulette is then forecast to slow down and turn SE by late Thursday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 105 mph with higher gusts. Some strengthening is possible through tonight, but rapid weakening is forecast to begin on Wednesday.

Tropical Storm Teddy expected to become a large hurricane over the central Atlantic in a few days. Teddy is centered about 1030 miles east of the Lesser Antilles and moving WNW. A WNW to NW track is anticipated during the next few days.
Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 60 mph with higher gusts. Strengthening is forecast for the next several days, and Teddy is likely to become a hurricane late today and could reach major hurricane strength in a few days.

Tropical Storm Vicky is forecast to weaken over the next couple of days. Vicky is centered about 500 miles NW of the Cabo Verde Islands and moving NW. A turn toward the WNW is expected within the next day or so, followed by a turn toward the west.
Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph with higher gusts. Weakening is forecast due to strong upper-level winds during the next 48 hours, and Vicky is likely to degenerate into remnant low by Wednesday.
