The post-tropical cyclone is moving towards the southwest near 23 miles per hour (37 km/h), the NHC said, adding that the cyclone is forecast to dissipate later on Friday.

Post-tropical Arlene is located about 1,235 miles or 1,985 kilometers west of the Azores, the Miami-based weather forecaster said.
