(Reuters) - Hurricane Pablo decreased in intensity to become a tropical storm, with additional weakening expected, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said on Sunday.

Pablo was located about 710 miles (1,150 km) northeast of the Lajes Air Base in Azores, Portugal, with a maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour, the forecaster said.

The tropical storm is expected to become a post-tropical cyclone by Monday morning.
