Maximum sustained winds are near 40mph and Wilfred is moving west-northwestwards at almost 16mph.
This general motion is expected to continue through Sunday, followed by a slower westward motion late on Sunday and Monday.
Gradual weakening is expected on Sunday night and Monday and the storm is expected to dissipate by Tuesday.

There are several tropical disturbances churning right now.
The first is the post-tropical cyclone Paulette located around a few hundred miles south of the Azores and continues to produce a few showers.
This system is drifting southward over marginally warm waters and is expected to begin moving eastward in a couple of days.
The cyclone could develop tropical or subtropical characteristics during the next day or two.
There is a 60 percent chance of formation through the next 48 hours or five days.
There is also an area of small low-pressure system is located near a frontal boundary, just
off the eastern coast of central Florida.
The low is producing a small area of thunderstorms near the coast, and recent buoy and satellite-derived wind data indicate that gale-force winds are occurring in the area.
The low is expected to move inland over Florida later this morning, and significant development is not anticipated.
There is a 10 percent chance of formation through the next 48 hours or five days.
There is also a tropical disturbance currently moving across the eastern North Pacific.
Showers and thunderstorms associated with a broad area of low pressure is located a couple of hundred miles south-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico which are beginning to show signs of organisation.
There is a 70 percent chance of formation through the next 48 hours and a 90 percent chance through the next five days.
According to Cyclocane the following are all the tropical disturbances whirling around the world right now:
There are also four tropical storm risk areas according to Cyclocane.
The first is currently located in the northwest Pacific Ocean and involves an area of convection located around 367 nautical miles east-southeast of Kadena, Okinawa.
