NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed over the Eastern Atlantic Ocean and captured a visible image of Hurricane Leslie as it continues to travel toward southern Spain and Portugal.
A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Madeira Island.
Interests in Portugal and Spain should monitor the progress of Leslie.
Leslie is expected to bring significant rain and wind impacts to portions of Portugal and Spain by Sunday
Suomi NPP passed over Leslie on Oct. 11 and the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument provided a visible image of the storm.
The VIIRS image showed Leslie's cloud pattern continues to feature a central dense overcast, but with only hints of an eye in visible imagery.
