By mid-week, some strengthening is anticipated and Leslie could be near hurricane strength on Wednesday or Thursday.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 230 miles (370 km) from the center.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 987 mb (29.15 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- SURF:  Large swells generated by Leslie will continue to affect portions of the northeastern coast of the United States, Bermuda, the Greater and Lesser Antilles, and Atlantic Canada through tonight.
