As of 11:00 AM AST (1500 UTC) on September 3rd, the center of, Tropical Storm Leslie (12L)  was located near latitude 24.4 north, longitude 63.1 west.

Leslie is moving toward the north-northwest near 8 mph (13 km/h). A turn toward the north and a slower forward speed is expected over the next 48 hours. Maximum sustained winds remain near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts. Little change in strength is forecast during the next couple of days. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 205 miles (335 km) from the center. Estimated minimum central pressure is 998 mb (29.47 inches).

Hazards affecting land include surf: swells generated by Leslie could affect portions of the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands for another day or so. Swells could also affect Bermuda and the U.S. east coast from central Florida northward for the next several days. These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
