Hurricane Tammy is pulling away from the northern Leeward Islands, but a trailing area of heavy rain continues to affect portions of the Windward and Leeward Islands.  Min pressure is currently 988 mb with max winds to 75 kts and significant wave heights to 8 meters (26 feet) as it moves NW at 8 kts.

NHC Forecast Track Hurricane Tammy

Tammy will likely maintain max winds near 75-80 kts for the next 2-3 days as it moves north then northeast over warm sea surface temperatures and moderate wind shear. Drier air and increasing wind shear will start to weaken Tammy in 3-4 days leading to extratropical transition as blocking high pressure to the north turns the storm back towards the northwest.
