DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 AM AST (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Leslie was
located near latitude 31.6 North, longitude 55.6 West. Leslie is
moving toward the southwest near 7 mph (11 km/h). A slow
southwestward or south-southwestward motion is expected through
Wednesday morning. A turn to the north is forecast to occur late
Wednesday into Thursday, followed by a motion toward the
north-northeast on Friday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher
gusts. Gradual strengthening is expected during the next 48 hours,
and Leslie is forecast to become a hurricane by Wednesday morning.

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

The estimated minimum central pressure is 989 mb (29.21 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 later today, they are expected to increase again on
Wednesday and Thursday and propagate farther southward into the
Greater and Lesser Antilles. Please consult products from your
local weather office.
