Tropical Storm Rina continues to move through the North Atlantic Ocean, remaining well out to sea. The cyclone is located 460 miles south-southeast of Cape Race, Newfoundland, moving northward near 23 mph. Winds have decreased to near 50 mph with gusts to 65 mph.
Rina is expected to continue a north to northeastward track through the Atlantic. The storm is expected to become a post-tropical cyclone by early Thursday morning, merging into a frontal system.
Rina formed in an area favored for tropical development in November, east of Bermuda. Development for tropical systems will continue to become less likely in the coming weeks as water temperatures continue to cool throughout the tropics.
