Delta weakens to non-tropical system Saturday evening

ORLANDO, Fla. — Delta weakened into a non-tropical low Saturday night, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The generic storm system is no longer considered a tropical depression.

The remains of Delta are still bringing a tornado threat to parts of the southeast U. S.

Original report:

Hurricane Delta made landfall Friday night as a Category 2 storm near Creole, LA, bringing heavy rain, high winds and life-threatening storm surges to the state of Louisiana.

Many communities picked up 10 to 20 inches of rainfall over the last 36 hours.

Delta has since weakened significantly and is currently a tropical storm heading northeast into northern Mississippi.

Tropical Storm Delta will continue to bring heavy rain for parts of the southeast this weekend as it continues to weaken.

The tropics are looking to remain relatively quiet during this upcoming week.

Our next name on the list, if we get there, is Epsilon.

Hurricane season ends Nov. 30.
