DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1100 AM AST (1500 UTC), the center of Hurricane Leslie was
located near latitude 32.5 North, longitude 57.2 West. Leslie is
moving toward the north near 9 mph (15 km/h), and this motion with
an increase in forward speed is expected through tonight. A
reduction in speed is forecast on Friday and Friday night, with
Leslie turning toward the east or east-southeast over the weekend.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 75 mph (120 km/h)
with higher gusts. Continued gradual weakening is expected during
the next several days, and Leslie may weaken to a tropical storm on
Friday.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 40 miles (65 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 195 miles
(315 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 979 mb (28.91 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.
