MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Tropical Storm Julia is meandering off the southeast coast of the United States.

At 11 a.m., the center of the system was about 385 miles southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina.

Julia was moving toward the east-southeast at 7 mph. A slow and erratic motion offshore of the coast of South Carolina is expected during the next couple of days.

Maximum sustained winds were near 40 mph with higher gusts. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles to the east of the center.

Little change in strength is forecast for Friday, but gradual weakening is anticipated after that time.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.
