Tropical storm Claudette, the third named tropical storm of the 2015 Atlantic season, formed east of the mid-Atlantic coast, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said on Monday.

Claudette was located about 290 miles (465 kilometers) south-southeast of Nantucket, Massachusetts and was packing maximum sustained winds of 50 miles per hour (85 km/h), the Miami-based weather forecaster said.
Claudette was moving towards the northeast near 15 mph (24 km/h) and is not expected to be a threat to the United States, the NHC said.
