    Tropical Storm Nadine formed out over the Atlantic Tuesday, becoming the 14th named storm of the 2012 hurricane season, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami.

    As of 11 p.m. Nadine had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph as it moved west-northwest at 15 mph about 1080 miles east of the Lesser Antilles, the National Hurricane Center said.

    The storm emerged as a tropical depression earlier Tuesday before strengthening into a tropical storm.

    Nadine is expected to strengthen over the next 48 hours and turn northwestward by Wednesday morning. It remained no threat to land and there were no watches or warnings in effect.

    Meantime, Leslie became a post-tropical cyclone and Michael weakened into a post-tropical cyclone Tuesday.
