Tropical Storm Melissa is expected to become post-tropical later today according to hurricane forecasters.

Melissa had top winds today of 85 km/h and was headed in an east-northeast direction.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect, but gale-force winds are expected over portions of the western and central Azores islands tonight.

Gradual weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours and Melissa is expected to lose tropical characteristics tonight and become a post-tropical cyclone.
