 At 4.00 a.m. the centre of Tropical Storm Lisa was located near latitude 17.7 degrees north, longitude 31.8 degrees west, or about 850 kilometres west-northwest of the Cape Verde Islands.

Lisa is moving toward the north near 7 km/h and this general motion is expected to continue during the next 24 hours. A turn toward the north-northwest with a slight decrease in forward speed is forecast on Wednesday, followed by a turn toward the west-northwest on Thursday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 65 km/h, with higher gusts. Some additional strengthening is forecast during the next couple of days.
