with higher gusts. Some slow strengthening is forecast during the 
next couple of days.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km) 
mainly to the north and east of the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 999 mb (29.50 inches).

to 4 inches, with isolated totals of 6 inches, across the Leeward 
Islands, U.S. and British Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico this 
weekend. 

Limited flash, urban, and small stream flooding impacts are 
possible.  Rapid rises on rivers and mudslides in areas of steep 
terrain are also possible, especially across the central interior 
region of Puerto Rico.

WIND:  Gusty winds, especially in squalls, are possible across the
northern Leeward Islands, the Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico
