Aug. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Tropical Storm Ernesto, the fifth named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, weakened and isn’t expected to change much in terms of intensity for the rest of the day, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

The weather system, which weakened to maximum sustained winds of 50 miles (80 kilometers) per hour from 60 mph earlier, is moving west-northwest at 18 mph, the Miami-based center said in its latest advisory.

The storm is about 295 miles south-southeast of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, and about 590 miles east-southeast of Kingston, Jamaica, the center said.
