Hurricane Sam is expected to become a powerful post-tropical low-pressure system by early Tuesday, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Although gradual weakening is forecast during the next few days, Sam is expected to transition into a powerful post-tropical cyclone over the North Atlantic within the next 6-12 hours.

Sam is the eighteenth named storm of the 2021 storm season.
