MIAMI (CBSMiami) – As Lee continues to move west over the eastern tropical Atlantic as it has weakened to a Tropical Depression and is not expected to be a threat to land.
Lee is currently moving slowly to the west over the open eastern Atlantic.
As of 11 a.m. Lee is about 875 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands and moving west at eight miles per hour.
Lee is moving toward the west near 8 mph (13 km/h), but a turn toward the west-northwest with an increase in forward speed is expected by tonight. That motion should continue through Tuesday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. Weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Lee could degenerate into a remnant low by Monday night.
