the coast of North Carolina and approach Bermuda over the weekend.

Maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher
gusts. Gradual weakening is forecast through Friday night.
Restrengthening is possible over the weekend, and Idalia is expected
to transition back to a tropical storm by Saturday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 230 miles (370 km)
