Tropical Storm Karen to dissipate in about four days.

Tropical Storm Karen is expected to dissipate in about four days as upper-level winds should prevent her from reorganizing. Karen is no threat to Sebastian.

Karen will become nothing more than a tropical disturbance early Saturday as she begins to move west. The GFS and EURO spaghetti models are showing this pattern.

The tropical storm is 350 miles south of Bermuda and has slowed down to 8 mph with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph. The winds are gradually decreasing inside this storm.

We are still monitoring Karen every six hours and will continue to update.
