11 AM Update

Hurricane Leslie has barely moved over the last 12 hours as she continues her slow journey north at 2 mph with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph.  Her projected path has shifted and looks to take a turn to the north-northeast the beginning of next week. Leslie is expected to intensify by the weekend as she approaches Bermuda.NHC 5-Day Hurricane Leslie 9/6/12 11AM

Not much development today as Leslie has become stationary.

The good news is that her projected path will change course towards the north-northeast on Sunday. This change in course, is aided by a cold front that is pushing off the east coast, which is  helping to steer Leslie out to sea.

If the daily trend continues to shift east, Leslie will hopefully be a non-issue for the Canadian ports!
