After peaking with sustained winds of 65 miles per hour, Subtropical Storm Melissa is starting lose steam in the Atlantic Ocean.

The storm is now a minimal subtropical storm as it continues to move to the northeast. Forecasters with the National Hurricane Center expect the storm to continue to weaken as the days progress.

There is a chance that Melissa could transition into a fully-featured Tropical Storm, but that will likely not last long as it is expected to go post-tropical after that.

Although a direct impact will likely not occur, parts of Bermuda, Puerto Rico and the Bahamas could see large swells and rip currents from the storm.
