    DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
    ----------------------
    At 500 PM AST (2100 UTC), the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Leslie
    was located near latitude 40.5 North, longitude 9.5 West. The
    post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the northeast near 35 mph (56
    km/h) and this motion is expected to continue during the next 24
    hours with a decrease in forward speed. On this track, the center of
    Leslie will be near the west-central coast of Portugal in a few
    hours, and move inland over portions of central and northern
    Portugal tonight, and across northwestern and northern Spain Sunday
    morning.

    Maximum sustained winds are near 70 mph (110 km/h) with higher
    gusts. Weakening is forecast after Leslie moves inland over the
    Iberian peninsula, and the cyclone is forecast to dissipate by
    Sunday afternoon or evening.

    Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 160 miles (260 km)
    from the center. Lisbon, Portugal recently reported a wind gust to
    40 mph (65 km/h).

    The estimated minimum central pressure is 984 mb (29.06 inches).


    HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
    ----------------------
    WIND: Post-tropical Leslie will bring winds to near hurricane-force
    to portions of Portugal tonight, and gale-force winds to portions of
    western amd northern Spain later tonight through early Sunday.
    Please see products from your local meteorological service for more
    information on this hazard.

    RAINFALL: Leslie is expected to produce total rainfall accumulations
    of 1 to 3 inches (25 to 75 mm) with localized amounts up to 5 inches
    (125 mm) across portions of Portugal and Spain this weekend. This
    rainfall may lead to some instances of flash flooding.

    SURF: Swells generated by Leslie will continue to affect the
    Azores, Madeira Island, and the Canary Islands through the weekend,
    and will begin to affect the Atlantic coasts of Spain, Portugal, and
    Morocco today and continuing into Sunday. These swells are likely
    to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please
