SYNOPSIS:   

Low moisture levels along with a relatively stable atmosphere will restrict precipitation during this forecast period.

SPECIAL FEATURE: 
At 11:00 AM (1500 UTC), the center of major Hurricane Sam was located about 580 miles east of St. Maarten. Sam is moving toward the northwest near 8 mph. Maximum sustained winds are near 130 mph with higher gusts.  

On its current forecast track, the center of hurricane Sam is predicted to pass about 350 miles northeast at its closest point to St. Maarten, early Thursday.
The Meteorological Department of St. Maarten will continue to monitor this system and update the public accordingly.
