DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 200 AM AST (0600 UTC), the center of Hurricane Teddy was located
near latitude 27.6 North, longitude 61.6 West. Teddy is moving
toward the northwest near 13 mph (20 km/h), and this general motion
is expected to continue this morning. A turn toward the north is
expected by tonight followed by a faster northward motion on Monday.
On the forecast track, Teddy will approach Bermuda on Sunday night,
and the center will pass just east of the island Monday morning.

Maximum sustained winds are near 115 mph (185 km/h) with higher
gusts. Teddy is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson
Hurricane Wind Scale. Slow weakening is expected beginning later
today.

Teddy is a large hurricane. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up
to 60 miles (95 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds
extend outward up to 255 miles (405 km). Teddy's wind field is
likely to become even larger over the next few days. NOAA buoy
