MIAMI, Sept. 24 (UPI) -- Tropical Storm Nadine maintained its strength as it trekked across the eastern Atlantic Ocean Monday, U.S. forecasters said.

Nadine, with maximum sustained winds of 50 mph throughout the day, was about 445 miles south-southwest of the Azores, moving west at 7 mph, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said in its 5 p.m. EDT advisory.

No coastal watches or warnings were in effect.

Forecasters said Nadine wasn't expected to change in intensity much during the next two days.

Tropical storm-force winds extended outward up to 185 miles from the storm's center.

Nadine was expected to turn to the west-southwest and slow down Tuesday, then veer to the south Tuesday night.
