MIAMI -- Tropical Storm Dorian is continuing to become less organized as it moves across the Atlantic, far from land.

The storm’s maximum sustained winds at 11 a.m. Friday are near 50 mph and the National Hurricane Center says the storm is expected to begin slowly weakening over the next day or so.

Dorian is centered about 1,295 miles east of the northern Leeward Islands and is moving west-northwest near 21 mph.

Meanwhile in the Pacific, Tropical Storm Flossie has strengthened a little. That storm’s maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph. Flossie is centered about 1,520 miles east of Hilo, Hawaii, and is moving west-northwest near 18 mph.

There are currently no land threats from either storm.
