DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK

At 500 PM AST (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Leslie was
located near latitude 30.1 North, longitude 56.4 West. Leslie is
moving toward the south-southwest near 9 mph (15 km/h), and this
motion with a decrease in forward speed is expected through early
Wednesday. 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 have increased to near 70 mph (110 km/h)
with higher gusts. Gradual strengthening is expected during the
next day or two, and Leslie is forecast to become a hurricane
tonight or early Wednesday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 230 miles (370 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 986 mb (29.12 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 during the next few days. Swells are expected to
increase near the coasts of New England and Atlantic Canada by the
end of the week. Please consult products from your local weather
office as these conditions could cause life-threatening surf and rip
currents.
