Fiona is holding as tropical depression in the Atlantic


MIAMI (AP) — The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Fiona is holding as a tropical depression in the Atlantic.

The depression’s maximum sustained winds early Monday are near 35 mph (55 kph). Little change in strength is expected during the next two days but forecasters say it could become a remnant low in the next day or two.

Fiona is centered about 670 miles (1,080 kilometers) southeast of Bermuda and is moving west-northwest near 18 mph (30 kph).

Meanwhile in the Pacific, Tropical Storm Kay is expected to weaken later in the day.

Kay’s maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 kph). The storm is centered about 430 miles (690 kilometers) west of the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula and is moving west-northwest near 8 mph (13 kph).

Neither tropical system currently poses a threat to land.
