DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 200 PM AST (1800 UTC), the center of Hurricane Teddy was located 
from satellite imagery and Bermuda radar near latitude 32.2 North, 
longitude 62.0 West. Teddy is moving toward the north-northeast 
near 18 mph (30 km/h), and this motion with some increase in 
forward speed is expected to continue today, followed by a turn 
toward the north tonight and north-northwest on Tuesday.  Teddy 
should turn to the north-northeast and decelerate as it approaches 
Nova Scotia on Wednesday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 90 mph (150 km/h) with higher
gusts.  Teddy is expected to gain strength overnight, but weaken
steadily by Wednesday and become a strong post-tropical cyclone.

Teddy is a large hurricane. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up
to 80 miles (130 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds
extend outward up to 230 miles (370 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 960 mb (28.35 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
Key messages for Teddy can be found in the Tropical Cyclone
Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDAT5 and WMO header WTNT45 KNHC
and on the web at www.hurricanes.gov/text/MIATCDAT5.shtml.

WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected to affect Bermuda
today.  Tropical storm conditions are expected to begin in 
the warning area by Tuesday afternoon.  Tropical-storm-conditions 
could begin in the watch areas late Tuesday or early Wednesday.

SURF:  Large swells generated by Teddy are affecting Bermuda, the
Lesser Antilles, the Greater Antilles, the Bahamas, the east coast
of the United States, and Atlantic Canada. These swells are likely
to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please
consult products from your local weather office.

RAINFALL: From Tuesday through Thursday, Teddy is expected to
produce rainfall accumulations of 2 to 4 inches (50 to 100 mm) with
isolated totals of 6 inches (150 mm) across sections of Atlantic
Canada.
