Hurricane Tammy is located just ESE of Guadeloupe but remains a small storm with max winds of 75 kts and radius of hurricane force winds extending out from the center only 10-20 nm. Tammy is moving NW at 7 kts which should keep the core winds over or just east of the leeward Islands during the next 12-24 hours. After passing the Leeward islands, Tammy should turn northward.

Hurricane and tropical storm conditions are expected in portions of the Leeward and northern Windward Islands through early Sunday. Heavy rains from Tammy will affect the Lesser Antilles north of Martinique today, spreading across the British and U.S. Virgin Islands and possibly eastern Puerto Rico on Sunday. 

Risk of encountering winds of 50 knots
