In the tropics, Leslie has reached hurricane strength.  At 5 am Wednesday, Leslie was located near 29.6 North, 56.9 West, and was nearly stationary.  Maximum sustained winds were 75 miles per hour.  Leslie is forecast to wander in the open Atlantic for the next several days.  Elsewhere, the area of low pressure in the southwestern Caribbean has a low chance of developing into a depression as it drifts northward during the next few days.  We’ll continue to watch it.
