DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 PM AST (2100 UTC), the center of Hurricane Leslie was located
near latitude 29.9 North, longitude 56.9 West. Leslie is moving
toward the north near 3 mph (6 km/h) and this motion, with an
increase in forward speed, should continue through Friday night. A
turn to the east is expected this weekend.

Maximum sustained winds are near 80 mph (130 km/h) with higher
gusts. Some slight strengthening is forecast during the next
day or so, but a slow weakening trend is expected to begin by
Friday.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 205 miles
(335 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 975 mb (28.80 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.
