DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 200 AM AST (0600 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Jerry was
located by an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft near
latitude 21.0 North, longitude 63.5 West. Jerry is moving toward
the west-northwest near 16 mph (26 km/h).  The tropical storm is
forecast to recurve over the western Atlantic during the next few
days.  On the forecast track, the center of Jerry will continue to
pass well north of the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico today, pass
well east of the southeastern Bahamas on Sunday, and turn northward
over the western Atlantic on Monday.

Data from the reconnaissance aircraft indicate that maximum
sustained winds have decreased to near 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher
gusts.  Some fluctuations in strength are likely during the next
several days.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles (150 km).

The minimum central pressure based on data from the aircraft is
estimated to be 995 mb (29.38 inches).
