MIAMI — Tropical Storm Dolly formed Tuesday over the northern Atlantic Ocean but was expected to dissipate later in the week, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.
The storm’s maximum sustained winds were near 45 mph (75 kph) but weakening is expected during the next day or two as Dolly moves over colder waters, the Hurricane Center said.
The storm is expected to become a post-tropical storm Wednesday and then dissipate by early Thursday, forecasters said.
As of Tuesday afternoon, Dolly was centered about 665 miles (1,070 kilometers) southwest of Cape Race, Newfoundland, and it was moving east-northeast at 13 mph (20 kph). It did not pose a threat to any land.
