Tail of hurricane Leslie to lash Britain with wet and windy weather

Tropical Storm Leslie, which was forecast to attain Category 1 hurricane strength tonight, continues to buffet the island with winds.

Severe wind and rain could be heading our way thanks to a tropical storm that has developed into a hurricane over parts of the USA and the Bahamas.

At 11 p.m. the center of the system was about 475 miles east-southeast of Bermuda.

Leslie could become a weak hurricane based on the latest forecast, but it will not threaten land as a tropical system.

Leslie is sending large swells to Florida, but is not a direct threat to the U.S. It is notable in that it has undergone multiple transformations to gain hurricane status and keeps the season above normal in terms of activity.

The storm was moving toward the southwest at 3 miles per hour. Forecasters say the storm is almost stationary and little movement is expected throughout the day.

"The upper level high extending from the United States east coast to Bermuda will also aid in keeping Leslie at a safe distance and provide overall good skies for both days".

There are no other named storms at this time, but there is one area showing minimal signs of development in the southwest Caribbean Sea.

Now dissolved Tropical Storm Kirk was the last storm to make a landfall.
