Tropical Storm Dolly Begins Brief Life Over Northern Atlantic

The National Hurricane Center said Tuesday that a subtropical depression in the northern Atlantic Ocean off the east coast of the United States had strengthened into Tropical Storm Dolly, with maximum winds of 45 miles per hour.

Dolly's time as a tropical storm is expected to be short-lived, as it will move over colder waters and become post-tropical on Wednesday and dissipate by Thursday.

The tropical storm is not a threat to land at this time.
