By Hannah Winston, Palm Beach Post Staff Writer Three tropical systems continue their westward paths in the Atlantic Ocean this weekend, with one expected to regain the strength of a major hurricane by next week, according to the 8 a.m. tropical weather outlook by the National Weather Service forecasters. BOOKMARK The Palm Beach Post’s hurricane tracking map Tropical Storm Florence, which was at one point a Category 4 hurricane, continues to have sustained winds of 65 mph. Forecasters expect Florence to regain hurricane strength winds by Sunday and become a major hurricane again by Tuesday as it moves toward the east coast of the U.S. during the week. Tropical Storm Helene, expected to come close to the southern Cabo Verde Islands off of Africa’s west coast, is moving west at about 13 mph with maximum sustained winds near 45 mph, forecasters said. Helene is expected to become a hurricane by Sunday. Tropical Depression 9, which is much further west than tropical storm Helene, is moving at a pace of 5 mph west with maximum sustained winds around 35 mph.
