The 2019 hurricane season's first named storm, Andrea, has weakened to a subtropical depression, weather officials said Tuesday morning.

At 10:45 a.m., Andrea was located roughly 250 miles west-southwest of Bermuda. Its maximum sustained winds were measured at about 35 mph.



Though Andrea is currently moving north at 8 mph, forecasters say it's likely to turn towards the northeast later today, as the center of the storm is expected to hover southwest of Bermuda over the next couple days.

Hurricane season officially kicks off June 1.
