Tropical Storm Pablo stronger in the Atlantic

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — A small tropical storm formed Friday in the northeast Atlantic Ocean.

Tropical Storm Pablo is about 205 miles south-southwest of the Azores and moving toward the east at 16 mph. The National Hurricane Center expects Pablo to pick up speed and head toward the northeast late Saturday and Sunday.

Pablo will pass near or over the Azores by Saturday night, meteorologists say.

At this point, Pablo is packing maximum sustained winds around 50 mph, with higher gusts. Tropical-storm-force winds are presently extending outward up to 45 miles from the small storm’s center.

Pablo should weaken to become an extratropical cyclone in the next few days — likely just northeast of the Azores.

There are not currently any watches or warnings in effect.
