CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Odette lost its tropical characteristics Saturday evening, and is now considered, Post-Tropical Cyclone Odette.

Winds are 45 mph and the system is moving to the east-northeast at 18 mph.

Odette is located about 300 miles east-southeast of Nantucket, Massachusetts, and around 375 miles to the south-southwest of Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Odette will continue to meander in the north-central Atlantic into late next week, not causing any direct impacts to the U.S.; yet it may continue to provide a rough surf for shipping industries and the Northeast U.S. coast.

Another weather disturbance moving across the central Atlantic Ocean, may also become Tropical Storm Peter in the next 24 hours.

Weather forecast data suggests this system could approach the Bahamas and be closer to the U.S. East Coast by late next week.

There is still a lot of uncertainty with the exact path this system will take, yet we will need to closely monitor the tropics for updates on the path and strength of this system.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs through November 30th.
