TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Margot has now weakened to tropical storm strength as it goes on a looping path in the days to come over the eastern North Atlantic.

Margot is about 600 miles from the Azores in the eastern North Atlantic, moving southwest at 5 mph, with highest sustained winds estimated to be 65 mph.

Margot will move slowly while it weakens over the next few days. It will stay over the open eastern North Atlantic waters but approach the Azores early next week as a diminishing tropical depression.
