The tropical storm Leslie, whose maximum sustained winds reach 60 miles per hour (95 km / h), will continue to strengthen in the Atlantic and can become a hurricane on Tuesday, reported today the National Hurricane Center (NHC).

In its most recent bulletin, the NHC indicates that Leslie is 635 miles (1,025 km) from Bermuda and moves west-southwest at 5 miles per hour (11 km / h), more slowly than during the weekend.

The Miami-based entity predicted that there may be a slow turn towards the southwest or the south in the coming days and also a gradual strengthening of the winds.

The storm, whose winds extend as far as 160 miles (260 km) from its center, may reach hurricane status on Tuesday, the NHC warned.

The swells produced by Leslie will affect Bermuda, the Bahamas, parts of the southeastern coast of the United States and most of the Greater Antilles and the Lesser Antilles in the coming days.
