MIAMI (AP) - The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Fiona is holding as a tropical depression in the Atlantic.

The depression's maximum sustained winds Monday are near 35 mph (55 kph). Little change in strength is expected during the next two days but forecasters say it could become a remnant low in the next day or two.

Fiona is centered about 615 miles (990 kilometers) southeast of Bermuda and is moving west-northwest at 17 mph (30 kph).

Meanwhile in the Pacific, Tropical Storm Kay has weakened and turned westward.

Kay's maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 kph). The storm is centered about 465 miles (745 kilometers) west of the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California peninsula and is moving west near 7 mph (11 kph).

Neither tropical system currently poses a threat to land.
