DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 800 AM AST (1200 UTC), the center of Hurricane Teddy was located
near latitude 25.5 North, longitude 58.5 West. Teddy is moving
toward the northwest near 14 mph (22 km/h), and this general motion
is expected to continue today. A turn toward the north is likely on
Sunday, followed by a continued northward motion into early next
week. On the forecast track, Teddy will approach Bermuda on Sunday
and move near or east of the island late Sunday and early Monday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 125 mph (205 km/h) with higher
gusts. Some fluctuations in intensity are likely today. A more
pronounced decrease in Teddy's maximum winds is forecast to begin on
Sunday, but the wind field of the hurricane is forecast to increase
substantially at the same time.

Hurricane-force winds currently extend outward up to 60 miles (95
km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up
to 230 miles (370 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 952 mb (28.12 inches).

through most of the day Monday.

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