DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK

At 1100 PM AST (0300 UTC), the center of Hurricane Teddy was located
near latitude 17.8 North, longitude 51.5 West. Teddy is moving
toward the northwest near 13 mph (20 km/h), and this general motion
is expected to continue through the weekend.

Maximum sustained winds are near 90 mph (150 km/h) with higher

and Teddy could become a major hurricane Thursday night or Friday.

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

(405 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 976 mb (28.82 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, Bermuda, and
the east coast of the United States by the weekend. These
swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current
conditions. Please consult products from your local weather office.
