(Corrects state in second paragraph.)

Oct. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Tropical Storm Sandy weakened slightly in the Atlantic as it moved closer to the U.S. Northeast, according to an advisory from the National Hurricane Center just before 5 a.m. New York time today. The system still “is expected to remain a large storm with widespread impacts into early next week,” the center in Miami said on its website.

Sandy was moving north-northeast at about 10 miles per hour and its maximum sustained winds had decreased to 70 mph from 75 mph earlier today, the center said. The eye of the storm was located about 350 miles southeast of Charleston, South Carolina.

The tropical storm may intensify late tomorrow, the center said.
