TROPICAL UPDATE: Tropical Storm Humberto is expected to strengthen into a hurricane late Sunday into early Monday, according to the National Hurricane Center. It will stay over the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean, eventually impacting Bermuda as a Category 2 Hurricane. It’s expected to increase the surf and rip current threat for coastal areas of the Southeast. There are two other disturbances the Center is watching, but they have a low chance of development within the next few days. We’ll keep you updated.
