Lee downgraded to tropical depression

SAUCIER, Miss. (AP) - Forecasters say Lee has weakened to a tropical depression with top sustained winds of 35 mph.

The National Hurricane center in Miami says the weather system is continuing its slow crawl to the east-northeast at 7 mph. It was centered about 55 miles west-northwest of McComb, Mississippi.

The downgrade in its status means that all tropical storm watches and warnings have been discontinued.

Forecasters expect the tropical depression to move across Mississippi overnight and on Monday.
