(Reuters) - Patty, which was a tropical storm, has weakened to a tropical depression Friday, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said in its latest bulletin.

Tropical Depression Patty was located about 265 miles east-northeast of the central Bahamas, with maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour (55 km per hour), the NHC said.

"Patty is expected to become a post-tropical remnant low by Saturday and dissipate by Sunday," the NHC said.
