MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- The former Hurricane Matthew became a "post-tropical" system over the weekend before a cold front in the western Atlantic merged into its remnants.  The previously shown forecast of the storm "looping" around the western Atlantic and returning to the Bahamas is no longer valid.

There remains tropical storm Nicole as the Atlantic basin's only active tropical system, with 60-mph peak winds about 400 miles south of Bermuda.  Its forecast movement to the north and northeast may bring the system very close to the island nation later this week, with chances to strengthen back to hurricane level before advancing into the colder waters of the northern reaches of the ocean.

There are no other points of concern currently existing in the tropical Atlantic basin as of Monday afternoon.
