DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1100 AM AST (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Florence was
located near latitude 25.0 North, longitude 51.8 West. Florence is
moving toward the west near 8 mph (13 km/h), and this general motion
is expected to continue through Sunday. A west-northwestward
motion with an increase in forward speed is forecast over the
southwestern Atlantic Ocean early next week.

Maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher
gusts. Little change in intensity is expected during the next day
or so, but restrengthening is forecast over the weekend. Florence
could become a hurricane again by Saturday night or Sunday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles (220 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 996 mb (29.42 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF: Swells generated by Florence will begin to affect Bermuda
later today and will reach portions of the U.S. East Coast over the
weekend. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and
rip current conditions. Please consult products from your local
weather office.
