DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 200 PM AST (1800 UTC), the eye of Hurricane Jerry was located by
an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft near latitude 17.2
North, longitude 55.2 West. Jerry is moving toward the west-
northwest near 16 mph (26 km/h). A west-northwest motion at a
similar forward speed is expected over the next few days. On the
forecast track, the center of Jerry will be near or north of the
northern Leeward Islands Friday, pass north of Puerto Rico on
Saturday and be east of the southeastern Bahamas on Sunday.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 85 mph (140 km/h)
with higher gusts.  Jerry could strengthen during the next day
before some weakening begins this weekend.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 20 miles (30 km) from
the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80
miles (130 km).

An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft recently reported a
minimum central pressure of 982 mb (29.00 inches).

WIND: Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch
areas by early Friday.

RAINFALL:  Jerry is expected to produce 1 to 3 inches of rainfall,
with isolated maximum totals of 4 to 6 inches from Barbuda
northwest across St. Marteen/Anguilla into Anegada. Jerry is
forecast to produce total rainfall accumulations of 1 to 2 inches
with maximum amounts of 3 inches across the the Virgin Islands and
Puerto Rico.

portions of the northern Leeward Islands this afternoon.  These

conditions. Please consult products from your local weather office.
