Tony, with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph, was about 615 miles southwest of the Azores, moving east-northeast at 22 mph, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said in its 5 p.m. EDT advisory.
Tony should continue to weaken during the next 24 hours and be absorbed by a larger low-pressure system over the northeastern Atlantic by Saturday.
Tropical storm-force winds extended outward from Tony's center as far as 80 miles.
