SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Tropical Storm Dorian lost force Saturday and became a tropical wave as it pushed westward across the Atlantic before nearing Caribbean islands.

National Weather Service meteorologist David Sanchez told The Associated Press that some rain and rough ocean conditions are expected on Monday in Puerto Rico.

The tropical wave had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph (65 kph) Saturday afternoon and it was centered about 550 miles (890 kilometers) east of the northern Leeward Islands, moving west at 24 mph (39 kph).

In the Pacific, Tropical Storm Flossie was moving quickly west-northwest, heading toward Hawaii, though it was projected to weaken before reaching the islands. It had maximum sustained winds of 50 mph (80.46 kph) and was centered about 920 miles (1,480 kilometers) east of Hilo, Hawaii. It was moving west-northwest at 18 mph (29 kph).

There were no watches or warnings in effect for either storm.
