At 1100 AM AST (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Earl was located near latitude 21.5 North, longitude 65.3 West. Earl is

moving toward the north-northwest near 5 mph (7 km/h). A slow motion to the north-northwest or north is forecast to continue for the next 24 to 48 hours followed by a gradual turn to the north-northeast thereafter.

gusts. Some slight additional strengthening is possible later today, with little change in strength expected tomorrow. Earl could still

become a hurricane later this week.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km) from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 998 mb (29.47 inches).
