Hurricane Lee tracker: Follow path of Category 3 storm as it moves north in Atlantic Ocean


Hurricane Lee was slowly moving northwest in the Atlantic Ocean with sustained winds near 120 miles per hour as a Category 3 storm Monday morning, according to the latest advisory from the National Hurricane Center.

It’s too soon to know the full impact Lee could have along the United States East Coast, since Lee is “expected to slow down considerably over the southwestern Atlantic,” the hurricane center said.

“Dangerous surf and life-threatening rip currents” will affect parts of the northern Leeward Islands, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, the Turks and Caicos Islands, Bahamas and Bermuda this week, the hurricane center said.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect as of Monday morning.

Here’s a live tracker of Lee’s projected path:
