NHC – In the latest advisory from the National Hurricane Center, Hurricane Lee remains a formidable Category 5 storm, maintaining its intensity with maximum sustained winds of 165 mph.
Located approximately 630 miles east of the Northern Leeward Islands, Lee is slowly moving west-northwest at 14 mph.
This trajectory is expected to continue through the coming week, albeit at a reduced forward speed.
Although there are currently no coastal watches or warnings in effect, Lee’s immense power is generating swells that will impact various regions, including the Lesser Antilles, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. East Coast.
These swells will result in life-threatening surf and rip current conditions, necessitating vigilance and monitoring by local weather offices.
Lee’s path is projected to steer clear of the northern Leeward Islands, the Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.
While fluctuations in intensity are possible, the storm is anticipated to remain a major hurricane through early next week.
As Lee’s impact looms, authorities and residents in potentially affected areas are advised to stay informed and prepared for any developments in this powerful hurricane’s path.
