While Hurricane Sally prepared to make landfall along the Gulf Coast at some point Tuesday, three other named storms were roaming around the Atlantic Ocean with none expected to impact South Florida.

Hurricane Paulette had winds of 100 mph as of the latest advisory from the National Hurricane Center in Miami, and was moving to the east-northeast at 28 mph while sitting 415 miles from Cape Race Newfoundland. No watches or warnings had been issued for Paulette, which was forecast to continue moving away from the United States.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Teddy had winds of 70 mph Tuesday evening while moving northwest at 9 mph about 865 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. Teddy also had no watches or warnings and was expected to strengthen to a major hurricane but not impact the United States.

Another system, Tropical Storm Vicky, had winds of 50 mph and was moving west-northwest at 12 mph about 710 miles from the Cabo Verde Islands. Vicky is expected to gradually weaken over the next few days.

A fourth system off the coast of Africa had a 70 percent chance of becoming a named storm within the next five days as it moves to the west, but was not forecast to impact South Florida or the United States.

Meanwhile, a fifth system in the northeastern Atlantic Ocean has a 20 percent chance of development and will continue to move away from the United States.
