(Reuters) - Former hurricane Irma has weakened further into a post-tropical cyclone, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Tuesday.

The storm system, about 100 miles (165 km) east-southeast of Birmingham, Alabama with maximum sustained winds of 25 miles per hour (40 km per hour), is likely to continue weakening throughout the day, the NHC said.
