MIAMI (AP) — The second named storm of this year’s hurricane season, Tropical Storm Bill, has strengthened slightly far off the U.S. Eastern seaboard. But it’s not expected to last for long.

Bill was expected to dissipate Wednesday as it moves over colder waters approaching the coast of Nova Scotia.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Bill became a tropical storm late Monday.

By Tuesday afternoon, it was swirling about 290 miles southeast of Halifax, Nova Scotia and had top sustained winds of 60 mph. It is taking a path that doesn’t pose any immediate threat to land.

Bill’s expected to become an extratropical cyclone before weakening Wednesday.
