Undated(AP)--Hurricane Alberto continues its movement across
the Atlantic, keeping its strength as forecasters try to predict
its course.

Alberto is now centered about 13-hundred miles east of the
Leeward Islands. Movement remains generally toward the west at
about 15 miles an hour, and that's expected to continue.

Top sustained winds are still at about 90 miles an hour, and
that's not expected to change much in the next 24 hours. However,
forecasters think conditions in the Atlantic may weaken Alberto a
bit before the storm strengthens again.

One model shows a more northwest motion later in the week, but
the official forecast is for the current track to continue.
