Tropical Storm Jerry strengthened to a hurricane Thursday, but forecasters say the storm is expected to take a turn toward the north and stay away from land.

Jerry is not forecast to change in strength much on Friday or Saturday, the National Hurricane Center said.

As of 11 a.m. the storm has winds of 75 mph. To be classified as a hurricane, a storm must have maximum sustained winds of at least 74 mph.

The center of Jerry will be near or north of the northern Leeward Islands on Friday and it will pass north of Puerto Rico on Saturday.

It could lose hurricane status Sunday, but restrengthen by Monday morning.
