Tropical Storm Sean Weakens Slightly

The National Hurricane Center reported Friday that Tropical Storm Sean has weakened slightly as it picks up speed and continues to move over the Atlantic.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 50 mph. Little change in strength is forecast before Sean is absorbed into a frontal system by tonight or early Saturday. As of Friday, It was about 95 miles west-northwest of Bermuda and moving northeast at 23 mph.

A tropical storm warning remains in effect for Bermuda, which is expected to see 1 to 3 inches of rainfall. Little change in strength is expected before Sean is absorbed by a frontal system Friday night or Saturday.

Swells generated by Sean are affecting portions of the Southeastern coast of the U.S. and Bermuda, causing life-threatening surf and rip currents. These swells should subside during the next day or so, according to the National Hurricane Center.
