Tropical Storm Olga lost steam in the Gulf of Mexico and was downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone early Saturday morning, while Tropical Storm Pablo churning in the northeast Atlantic is expected to meet a similar fate, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Olga dissipated overnight with no coastal watches or warnings in effect, the NHC said in its 3 a.m. advisory. The storm was expected to bring heavy rain and severe weather to the central Gulf Coast and lower Mississippi valley on Saturday.
Tropical Storm Pablo is not expected to affect United States. The storm is located about 205 miles southwest of the Azores, moving east at 16 mph with maximum sustained winds approaching 50 mph and tropical storm winds extending up to 45 miles, the NHC said in its 11 a.m. advisory.
Tropical Storm Pablo is expected to turn northeast throughout the day and then pass near or over the eastern Azores Saturday night with high gusts, the NHC said. But despite its recent burst of strength, the small storm is expected to become a post-tropical cyclone within the next two days.
No coastal watches or warnings are in effect for Tropical Storm Pablo at this time.
