Tropical Storm Melissa forms off northeast; should weaken

Washington Times 1 day ago

MIAMI (AP) - A late-season tropical storm has formed off the coast of Massachusetts but is expected to weaken as it moves away from the U.S.

The Hurricane Center in Miami says the storm poses minor to moderate coastal flooding along some portions of the Mid-Atlantic and southeastern coast.

Melissa had maximum sustained winds of 50 mph (80 kph) and was located about 305 miles (491 kilometers) southeast of the island of Nantucket, Massachusetts, on Saturday afternoon. It was moving east at 12 mph (19 kph), and was expected to weaken over the next day or so.

The Atlantic hurricane season lasts from June through November.
