Karen weakens into a low atmospheric pressure

The tropical depression has degenerated into a surface trough.

Karen has weakened even further from a tropical depression into a remnant low Friday evening. 

As of 5 p.m. Friday, the system is about 425 miles east-southeast of Bermuda. It has maximum sustained winds of 35 mph and is moving east-northeast at 6 mph.

Meteorologists said conditions are not conducive for significant further strengthening.

The NHC says Karen, or its remnants, are expected to slow down and make a clockwise loop over the southwestern Atlantic into the weekend.

There are no coastal warnings or watches in effect.
