DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 PM AST (2100 UTC), the center of Hurricane Teddy was located 
near latitude 26.7 North, longitude 60.2 West.  Teddy is moving 
toward the northwest near 13 mph (20 km/h), and this general motion 
is expected to continue through tonight.  A turn toward the north or 
north-northeast is expected by Sunday evening, followed by a faster 
northward motion into early next week.  On the forecast track, Teddy 
will approach Bermuda on Sunday and the center will pass just east 
of the island Monday morning.

Maximum sustained winds are near 120 mph (195 km/h) with higher
gusts.  Teddy is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson
Hurricane Wind Scale.  Some slow weakening is expected over the next
couple of days.  A more pronounced decrease in Teddy's maximum winds
is forecast to begin early next week.

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).  The wind field of the hurricane is forecast to
increase substantially starting on Sunday night.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 958 mb (28.29 inches).

SURF: Large swells generated by Teddy are affecting the Lesser
Antilles, the Greater Antilles, the Bahamas, Bermuda, and the east
coast of the United States. Swells from Teddy should reach Atlantic
Canada by early Sunday. These swells are likely to cause life-
