Source: National Hurricane Center

Tropical Storm Dorian continues to become less organized Saturday as it moves across the Atlantic, still far away from any land.

The storm’s maximum sustained winds at 11 a.m. Saturday are near 40 mph and the U.S. National Hurricane Center says the storm is expected to become a remnant low or a tropical wave in a day or so.

Dorian is centered about 720 miles east of the northern Leeward Islands and is moving west near 23 mph. No watches or warnings have been issued.

Meanwhile in the Pacific, Tropical Storm Flossie is maintaining strength. That storm’s maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph. Flossie is centered about 1040 miles east of Hilo, Hawaii, and is moving west near 20 mph.

There are currently no land threats from either storm.
