Tropical Storm Leslie continued moving slowly over the Atlantic as Michael remained a small tropical storm Wednesday, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami.
As of 11 p.m., Leslie had maximum sustained winds of 75 mph as it moved north at 2 mph about 445 miles south-southeast of Bermuda.
Leslie was getting better organized and is expected to gradually strengthen and could become a hurricane later Wednesday.
There were no coastal watches or warnings in effect and Leslie was no threat to land, though swells generated by the storm will continue to affect Bermuda, the U.S. east coast from central Florida northward, the northern Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
Meanwhile, Michael had maximum sustained winds near 75 mph as it moved northeast at 7 mph about 1060 miles west-southwest of the Azores.
Michael was expected to gradually strengthen over the next 48 hours but remained no threat to land.
