TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- Looking in the tropics, we are still watching Tropical Storm Leslie.

This storm is about 800 miles east northeast of Bermuda with sustained winds of 50 mph. Leslie continues to move slowly toward the southwest direction at about 6 mph.

Over the next few days, Tropical Storm Leslie will barely move while holding on to its tropical storm status. By the middle of the week, a mid-level trough should help steer the storm toward the north.

Aside from Leslie, the tropics are forecast to be much quieter over the next five days.
