DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK

----------------------

At 1100 PM EDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Arthur was

located by an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft near

latitude 29.4 North, longitude 77.7 West. Arthur is moving toward

the north-northeast near 13 mph (20 km/h). A motion toward the

north-northeast or northeast is expected tonight and Sunday. After

that time, a faster northeastward motion is expected on Monday. On

the forecast track, Arthur will remain well offshore the east coast

of Florida and Georgia tonight and Sunday, and then move near or

east of the coast of North Carolina on Monday.

Data from the reconnaissance aircraft indicate that maximum

sustained winds have increased to near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher

gusts. Additional strengthening is forecast during the next 48

hours.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km)

from the center.

The minimum central pressure based on reports from the

reconnaissance aircraft is estimated to be 1006 mb (29.71 inches).

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

----------------------

WIND: Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch

area on Monday.

RAINFALL: The depression is expected to produce additional rain

accumulations of 1 to 2 inches over the central and northwest

Bahamas, and generally less than 1 inch over south Florida through

tonight. The depression is also expected to produce total rain

accumulations of 1 to 2 inches over coastal North Carolina Sunday

night and Monday.

SURF: Swells generated by the depression are affecting portions of

the east coast of central and northern Florida. These swells are

expected to spread northward during the next few days, and could

cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions across much

of the U.S. southeast and mid-Atlantic coasts. Please consult

products from your local weather office.
