MIAMI -- A tropical storm that brought heavy rain to mid-Atlantic states and southern New England has been downgraded for a second time Saturday morning.

The National Hurricane Center's 5 a.m. advisory stated that Fay had weakened to a post-tropical cyclone, which is just an area of low pressure.

It was located about 30 miles south of Albany, New York. Fay had closed beaches and flooded shore towns after it made landfall as a tropical storm Friday afternoon in New Jersey.

The forecast track takes the system into western New England and then southeastern Canada later Saturday and into Sunday. Rain totals of 1 to 2 inches are possible.
