DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 1100 AM AST (1500 UTC), the center of Hurricane Alex was located
near latitude 31.5 North, longitude 28.4 West. Alex is moving toward
the north-northeast near 20 mph (31 km/h) and a turn toward the
north with an increase in forward speed is expected over the next
day or two. On the forecast track, the center of Alex will move
near or over portions of the Azores Friday morning.

Maximum sustained winds are near 85 mph (140 km/h) with higher
gusts. Little change in strength is forecast through Friday.

Hurricane force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the
center and tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 150 miles
(240 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 981 mb (28.97 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND: Tropical-storm-force winds are expected to begin over
portions of the Azores tonight. Hurricane conditions are expected
to spread over the central Azores by early Friday.

Wind speeds atop and on the windward sides of hills and mountains
are often up to 30 percent stronger than the near-surface
winds indicated in this advisory, and in some elevated locations
could be even greater.

RAINFALL: Alex is expected to produce total rain accumulations of
3 to 5 inches over the Azores through Friday, with possible
isolated maximum amounts of 7 inches. These rains could produce
life-threatening flash floods and mud slides.

STORM SURGE: A dangerous storm surge is expected to produce
significant coastal flooding near and to the east of the center of
Alex. Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and
destructive waves.
