MIAMI – Forecasters say that as expected, Tropical Storm Grace is dying in the northeastern Atlantic Ocean.

Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami say the remnants of the storm were being absorbed Monday night by a front.

They say Grace's top sustained winds have dropped to 50 mph (85 kph).

The center of the storm was about 210 miles (335 km) southwest of Cork, Ireland, around 11 p.m. EDT.

It's moving toward the north-northeast near 26 mph (43 kph).

The remnants will likely continue to produce a small area of gale force winds through early Tuesday.
