Hurricane Lee Brings Dangerous Surf to Southeastern U.S.

From a story on by Andrew Freedman headlined “Hurricane Lee brings dangerous surf to southeaster U.S.”:

Hurricane Lee restrengthened into a Category 3 storm on Sunday, and it is forecast to slowly re-intensify as it spins west-northwestward in the tropical Atlantic.

The big picture: The powerful hurricane is forecast to stay well north of the Leeward Islands, Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, and slow down by Monday, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The storm has so far challenged meteorologists by intensifying at one of the fastest rates on record Thursday to reach Category 5 intensity, only to be disrupted by dry air, stronger upper-level winds and other factors on Friday into Saturday morning.
