MIAMI, Sept. 30 (UPI) -- Hurricane Nadine was expected to largely stay put Sunday as it continued to churn away in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, U.S. forecasters said.

The long-lived storm remained a Category One hurricane at 5 a.m. EDT Sunday with maximum sustained winds near 90 miles per hour reaching out as far as 35 miles from the eye, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said in its Sunday morning update.

Nadine was far from land and no watches or advisories were in effect along the North American coast. While there was some slight movement to the northeast, the Hurricane Center noted a complex combination of low-pressure and high-pressure areas was holding the storm in place.

Nadine seemed to strengthen slightly overnight but was expected to begin weakening Monday and dip below hurricane strength later in the week.
