MIAMI — Tropical Storm Delta is sliding over northern Louisiana with weakening winds after dropping several inches of rain in the state.

Maximum sustained winds were at 40 mph (65 kph) Saturday morning, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The system is expected to further weaken to a tropical depression later in the day.

Delta is centered about 45 miles (70 kilometers) east of Monroe, Louisiana. The storm is forecast to continue moving to the north-northeast over parts of Mississippi and into the Tennessee Valley through Sunday.
