Major Hurricane Maria moving away from the Turks and Caicos.

Hurricane Maria remains a Category 3 hurricane with maximum-sustained winds of 115 mph. This major hurricane is centered about 285 miles to the east of Great Abaco Island in The Bahamas. It is moving north-northwest at 8 mph.
Some of the outer bands from Maria will still affect the southeastern Bahamas today with gusty winds and heavy rainfall, along with very rough surf. However, the worst of Maria will stay well to the east of these areas. Heading into next week, all interests along the East Coast of the United States, as well as Bermuda should continue to carefully monitor Maria.
The primary area of concern for potential direct effects of wind and rain from Maria is the Outer Banks of North Carolina, as the hurricane will sideswipe that area with some bands of rain and gusty wind around the middle of next week. Swells generated by Maria will cause rough seas and surf for much of the East Coast over the next several days, so mariners should seek safe harbor and beachgoers will need to be aware of the dangerous surf and a high rip current risk.
Lee remains a small and weak tropical storm far away over the the central Atlantic about 875 miles east of Bermuda. Lee is forecast to strengthen and become a hurricane over the next few days, but will pose no threat to land.
