Hurricane Bill has weakened slightly to a Category 3 storm as it roars over the open Atlantic.

Bill's maximum sustained winds had decreased to 125 mph early Thursday. But forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami say Bill could strengthen and become a Category 4 storm again.

Bill is centered about 325 miles north-northeast of the Leeward Islands and about 790 miles south-southeast of Bermuda. The hurricane is moving northwest near 18 mph.

Forecasters say Bill should begin pushing large swells toward Bermuda and parts of the southeastern U.S. coast by the weekend.
