On the forecast track, the centre of Karen will move away from the Windward Islands later today, and then across the eastern Caribbean Sea tonight and Monday. Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph with higher gusts. Little change in strength is forecast during the next 48 hours.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles, primarily in squalls to the east of the centre. the estimated minimum central pressure is 1006 mb.
