MIAMI, Florida (CNN) -- Once-Tropical Storm Erika became a remnant low pressure area on Thursday night, the National Hurricane Center said.
Erika, now just a low pressure area, could still bring some heavy rain to Caribbean islands.
As of 11 p.m. ET, the center of the area was about 115 miles (185 km) south-southeast of San Juan, Puerto Rico, and about 220 miles (360 km) southeast of Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, forecasters said.
It was moving west at near 7 mph (11 km/h) and was expected to turn west-northwest and northwest on Friday.
Maximum sustained winds were at 30 mph (45 km/h) with higher gusts in a few squalls, the Hurricane Center said. The low is forecast to dissipate in a day or so.
The remnants of Erika are expected to produce 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10 cm) of rain over the central and northern Lesser Antilles, Puerto Rico and the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, the Hurricane Center said. Isolated amounts of up to 6 inches (15 cm) are possible.
The Hurricane Center said no further advisories would be issued on Erika unless regeneration occurs.
