Sept. 15 (UPI) — Forecasters with the National Weather Service reclassified Paulette as a “strong” post-tropical cyclone over the North Atlantic on Wednesday, though the system retained Category 1 hurricane strength.
In its 5 p.m. AST advisory, the National Hurricane Center said the storm was located 390 miles east-southeast of the Azores. It had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph and was moving east at 12 mph.
Paulette is in the center of the Atlantic basin and is projected to take a southwestward path by the end of this week.
Forecasters don’t expect the storm to impact any other land.
Paulette became a hurricane last weekend and arrived over Bermuda on Sunday.
