DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1100 PM AST (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Leslie was
located near latitude 32.4 North, longitude 55.0 West. Leslie is
moving toward the southwest near 5 mph (7 km/h), and a slow
southwestward or south-southwestward motion is expected through
Wednesday. A turn to the north-northeast is forecast to occur
by Thursday night.

Maximum sustained winds are near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts.
Gradual strengthening is expected during the next 48 hours, and
Leslie is likely to become a hurricane Tuesday night.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 160 miles (260 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 990 mb (29.24 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF: Large swells generated by Leslie will continue to affect
portions of the southeastern coast of the United States, Bermuda,
and the Bahamas. These swells could cause life-threatening surf and
rip currents. Although the swells are forecast to abate temporarily
in the Bahamas Tuesday, they are expected to increase again
Wednesday and Thursday and propagate farther southward into the
Greater and Lesser Antilles. Please consult products from your
local weather office.
