DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 800 PM AST (0000 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Laura was
located near latitude 18.1 North, longitude 68.7 West. Laura is
moving toward the west near 18 mph (30 km/h), and a generally
west-northwestward motion is expected over the next few days.  On
the forecast track, the center of Laura will move across Hispaniola
tonight and early Sunday, near or over Cuba Sunday and Monday, and
into the southeastern Gulf of Mexico Monday night and Tuesday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher
gusts. No significant changes in strength are forecast during the
next 48 hours while Laura moves near or over Hispaniola and Cuba.

Monday night and Tuesday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 205 miles (335 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1004 mb (29.65 inches).

slopes.

Dominican Republic and Haiti: 4 to 8 inches, with maximum amounts of
12 inches across southern areas.

Cuba: 3 to 6 inches, with isolated amounts of 8 inches.

possible in Puerto Rico.

1 to 3 inches of rain, with isolated maximum totals of 5 inches, is
expected over the  northern Leeward Islands, the Turks and Caicos,
