In the tropics, Tropical Storm Leslie remain far out in the Atlantic, but its swells continue to affect the entire Atlantic coast.  At 5 am Friday, Leslie was located near 35.9 North, 58.3 West, and was moving north-northwest at 14 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were 65 miles per hour.  Leslie will wander in the open Atlantic for at least the next 5 days.  Elsewhere, the area of low pressure centered near the coast of Central America has a medium chance of developing into a depression in the northwestern Caribbean or southern Gulf of Mexico early next week.
