DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 PM EDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Arthur was
located near latitude 36.1 North, longitude 73.9 West. Arthur is
moving toward the northeast near 16 mph (26 km/h). A turn toward
the east-northeast is expected tonight, followed by a turn
toward the east on Tuesday. A slower southeast or south-southeast
motion is expected to begin Tuesday night and continue through
Wednesday. On the forecast track, the center of Arthur will
continue to move away from the east coast of the United States.

Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts.
While some strengthening is forecast during the next 24 hours,
Arthur is likely to lose its tropical characteristics late by
tonight or Tuesday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km)
primarily to the east of the center. NOAA Buoy 44014 located about
50 miles north west of Arthur's center recently measured a
sustained wind of 38 mph (61 km/h) and a gust to 45 mph (72 km/h).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 993 mb (29.33 inches).

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF: Swells generated by Arthur are expected to affect portions
of the mid-Atlantic and southeast U.S. coasts during the next
day or two. These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip
current conditions. Please consult products from your local weather
office.
