Meteorologists are keeping an eye on Hurricane Sam as it barrels across the Atlantic.

The National Hurricane Center says Sam is expected to continue in a westerly direction this week before it takes a northerly turn east of the Bahamas, avoiding landfall there. If projected conditions persist, the U.S. east coast is not thought to be in the storm’s path.

Surf and tides could still be affected, even if Sam stays off the coast. As of early this morning, forecasters say Sam is a major category four Hurricane and will remain a strong storm for at least the next five days or so.
