The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Tropical Storm Fiona is getting a little stronger as it moves across the Atlantic.

The storm's maximum sustained winds early Thursday have increased to near 45 mph (75 kph). Additional strengthening is possible Thursday followed by slow weakening by the weekend.

Fiona is centered about 1,080 miles (1,740 kilometers) west of the Cape Verde Islands and is moving west-northwest near 16 mph (26 kph).
