Hurricane Leslie Starts Moving To The North, Remains Category 1

Hurricane Leslie Starts Moving To The North, Remains Category 1

The National Hurricane Center declared Leslie a hurricane this morning as it gathered up its thunderstorms enough to develop a ragged eye overnight with 75 miles per hour winds.

In BWS forecast discussion, Gary Hall said, "Short Term Forecast [Monday-Tuesday]: Tropical Storm Leslie will be at its closet point to Bermuda during this period this will be when we see our strongest winds, which guidance has been consistent with near 25 knots".

Forecasters expect the hurricane to stay way out in the ocean for the next few days and the Met Office says it is still too early to say exactly what impact it will have on the UK.

Waves kicked up by the storm are forecast to increase along the southeast United States coast over the next few days, and also affect the Bahamas and the Lesser Antilles as well as Bermuda.

Don't Confirm Brett Kavanaugh, Says Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens
Speaking to a crowd in Boca Raton, Florida , the 98-year-old Stevens suggested that Kavanaugh's temperament should disqualify him. Like nearly every other current member of the Supreme Court, Stevens also has hired a former Kavanaugh clerk to work for him.

Unai Emery better than Arsene Wenger for Alex Iwobi
One thing we can say with certainty is that if Smith Rowe does fail to make the grade, it won't be through a lock of focus or drive.

Trilateral NAFTA revamp deal struck
After the announcement, the Canadian dollar gained around 0.5 percent to its highest rate against the U.S. dollar since May. At the end of the day, if it's a better deal, it's a better deal. "Without tariffs, we wouldn't be talking about a deal".

It is located 510 miles east-southeast of Bermuda and moving toward the southwest at 3 mph.

"The upper level high extending from the U.S. east coast to Bermuda will also aid in keeping Leslie at a safe distance and provide overall good skies for both days".

The National Hurricane Center is watching an area of low pressure in the southwestern Caribbean, giving it a 20 percent chance of developing over the next five days.

If the system were to become a tropical storm, it would be named Michael.
