MIAMI (AP) — Tropical Storm Ida is expected to stall in the open Atlantic and is not a threat to land.

The storm’s maximum sustained winds Monday night were about 45 mph (75 kph). The U.S. National Hurricane Center says little change in strength is expected over the next couple of days. It is forecast to slow down and change position very little in the coming days.

Ida is centered about 915 miles (1,470 kilometers) east-northeast of the northern Leeward Islands and is moving north-northwest near 5 mph (7 kph).

Meanwhile, a tropical depression that moved from the Pacific over Mexico has dissipated.
