  • Subtropical Storm Leslie reforms in the Atlantic

At 5 p.m. Wednesday, Leslie was about 495 miles (795 kilometers) east-southeast of Bermuda with sustained winds of 80 mph (130 kph).

Leslie remains a large tropical storm, with tropical-storm-force winds extending outward up to 290 miles (465 km) from the center of the tropical cyclone.

Leslie is moving toward the north near 8 miles per hour, and this general motion should continue through Friday night.

Waves kicked up by the storm are forecast to increase along the southeast USA coast over the next few days, and also affect the Bahamas and the Lesser Antilles as well as Bermuda. We are in the midst of one of the longer runs of swell we've seen in some time for both the East Coast and Caribbean Leslie's strengthening and favorable track sends even more swell to the East Coast and Caribbean regions.


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.

Strong north-easterly winds will gradually turn northerly as the storm progresses, according to the Bermuda Weather Service.

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

Now dissolved Tropical Storm Kirk was the last storm to make a landfall.
