Subtropical Storm Melissa now Full Tropical; Gaining Speed


It was once a sub-tropical storm, but now the Atlantic Ocean’s Melissa is fully tropical.

The storm is well east of the United States and is continuing to move away from North America at a speedy 32 miles per hour.

As of the 3am CST advisory on Thursday, it has sustained winds of 50 miles per hour.

It's not expected to get much stronger, but could finish the transformation from sub-tropical to tropical to post-tropical in a day or two.

In the meantime, gale-force winds are possible for some of the west and central Azores islands today and tonight.
