CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Hurricane Sam is weakening, yet growing in size as it moves across the Atlantic, headed toward the cooler waters of the Northern Atlantic by later next week.

Sam currently has winds of 125 mph, with a movement to the northeast at 17 mph.

Sam poses no threat to land, yet is creating large swells for the U.S. and Canadian coast, and will eventually bring a rough surf to Greenland and Iceland.

By Wednesday, Sam is forecasted to weaken into a tropical storm.

Tropical Depression Victor continues to weaken in the Central Atlantic and is forecasted to dissipate by midweek this week.
