Math riddle - Shrivelling pumpkin?

You do your Halloween shopping very early and buy a large pumpkin weighing 100 lbs. You're told this pumpkin is 99% water by weight. You leave the pumpkin on your back porch on a hot summer day and it dehydrates until it's only 98% water by weight. How much does the pumpkin weigh now?
