In the tropics, Melissa has transitioned into a tropical storm as it continues to move away from the U.S. coast.  At 5 am on Sunday, Melissa was located near 39.3 North, 62.6 West, and was moving east-northeast at 14 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were 45 miles per hour.  Melissa is expected to weaken to a remnant low on Monday, but it continues to create heavy swells affecting the entire eastern seaboard, Bermuda, and the Bahamas.

Elsewhere, a wave emerging from the African coast has a low chance of developing but will bring windy and rainy weather to the Cape Verde islands.  And a low off the coast of Central America has a low chance of developing but will bring heavy rain and gusty winds to portions of the region.
