MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Leslie has continued to weaken and is once again a tropical storm.

At 11 p.m. the center of the system was about 450 miles east-southeast of Bermuda.

Leslie is moving toward the north near 12 mph, and this motion is expected to continue through Friday with a decrease in forward speed.

Leslie should turn eastward or east-southeastward over the weekend.

Maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph with higher gusts.

Little change in strength is forecast during the next 2 to 3 days.

Leslie is a large cyclone and the tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 290 miles from the center.

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.
