DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 PM AST (2100 UTC), the center of Hurricane Teddy was located
near latitude 17.5 North, longitude 50.8 West. Teddy is moving
toward the northwest near 13 mph (20 km/h), and this general motion
is forecast to continue for the next few days.

Maximum sustained winds are near 100 mph (155 km/h) with higher
gusts. Additional strengthening is expected over the next day or
so, and Teddy is expected become a major hurricane during that time.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km) from the

(350 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 973 mb (28.74 inches).

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF: Large swells generated by Teddy are reaching the Lesser
Antilles and the northeastern coast of South America and should
spread westward to the Greater Antilles, the Bahamas, and Bermuda by
Friday. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and
rip current conditions. Please consult products from your local
weather office.
