Updated: Hurricane Sam forms - forecast to be a major storm

Hurricane Sam has now formed in the Atlantic and is forecast to become a major storm tomorrow.

It is the seventh hurricane of the season and the 18th named storm so far this year.

The storm was not considered a threat to the island at noon today.

BWS forecasts, which do not go beyond 72 hours, predicted that Sam would be 1,247 miles southeast of the island at noon on Monday. It is currently 21,948 miles to the southeast of Bermuda.

But, if forecast models hold, the storm will be one to monitor next week.
