The US National Hurricane Center says Tropical Storm Nadine is moving into an area of the Atlantic where conditions will be less favorable for strengthening.
Nadine's maximum sustained winds early Friday are just below hurricane strength at 70 mph (110 kph).
Nadine is centered about 800 miles (1,290 kilometers) northeast of the Northern Leeward Islands and moving north-northwest near 15 mph (24 kph). But the storm is expected to eventually turn toward the northeast, which would take it farther away from the US.
In the Pacific, Tropical Storm Kristy has gotten slightly stronger with maximum sustained winds near 60 mph (95 kph) but steady weakening is expected to begin. Kristy is centered about 240 miles (390 kilometers) southwest of the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California and is moving west-northwest.
