Tropics: In the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Franklin is located east of the Bahamas. It is expected to become a hurricane as it tracks between the US and Bermuda. The track will keep it away from the east coast, but it will create rough surf and strong rip currents by early next week. More details are available in the CBS Hurricane Tracker.

There are two more disturbances in the central Atlantic, but they will pose no threat to land.
