MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- Hurricane Edouard has been gradually losing strength in a colder, less-favorable environment in the north Atlantic.  Its highest winds were at 90 mph early Wednesday afternoon, and Edouard was starting to accelerate to the northeast, remaining far away from any land masses.  The storm will continue to weaken and transition into a post-tropical cyclone by the end of the week.

There are a few non-threatening areas of moisture along the southern Caribbean and the northern Gulf.  Neither of these are showing signs of future organization.

A new disturbance emerging from the west Africa coast will move south of the Cape Verde Islands and has a modest chance to gather additional strength within the next five days.
