MIAMI (AP) — Tropical Storm Ian has seen little change in strength as it moves over the central Atlantic.

The storm’s maximum sustained winds early Tuesday are near 45 mph (75 kph) with slight strengthening forecast over the next two days. Ian is centered about 980 miles (1,580 kilometers) east-southeast of Bermuda and is moving north-northwest near 9 mph (15 kph).

Meanwhile far out over the Pacific, Hurricane Orlene is expected to slow down. The Category 2 storm’s maximum sustained winds are near 105 mph (165 kph). The U.S. National Hurricane Center says gradual weakening is expected during the next few days.

Orlene is centered about 635 miles (1,020 kilometers) west-southwest of the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula and is moving north near 5 mph (7 kph).

Neither storm currently poses a threat to land.
