At 200 PM EDT (1800 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Alex was
located near latitude 30.8 North, longitude 72.5 West. Alex is
moving toward the east-northeast near 23 mph (37 km/h). A fast 
motion toward the east-northeast is expected through Monday, 
followed by an eastward motion at a slower forward speed on

Reports from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft
indicate that maximum sustained winds are now near 65 mph (105 
km/h) with higher gusts.  Little change in strength is expected 
through tonight.  After that, Alex is forecast to weaken, and 
the system is expected to become an extratropical low on Tuesday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 205 miles (335 km)
from the center mainly to the east of the center.
