A turn to the north is forecast to occur late Wednesday into Thursday, followed by a motion toward the north-northeast on Friday, the hurricane center says.

At 5 p.m. Wednesday, Leslie was about 495 miles (795 kilometers) east-southeast of Bermuda with sustained winds of 80 mph (130 kph).

Leslie is about 540 miles east of Bermuda and is moving to the southwest at 7 mph.

However the meandering storm is not predicted to threaten the island — although rough seas mean a small craft warning, likely to endure through Thursday.

Tropical Storm Leslie, which was forecast to attain Category 1 hurricane strength tonight, continues to buffet the island with winds. We are in the midst of one of the longer runs of swell we've seen in some time for both the East Coast and Caribbean Leslie's strengthening and favorable track sends even more swell to the East Coast and Caribbean regions. Forecasters say the storm is almost stationary and little movement is expected throughout the day.
