DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 PM AST (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Melissa was
located near latitude 39.9 North, longitude 58.8 West. Melissa is
moving toward the east-northeast near 18 mph (30 km/h) and this
motion is expected to continue through tonight.  A further increase
in forward speed and a turn toward the east are expected on Monday,
with that motion continuing into Wednesday.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 40 mph (65 km/h) with
higher gusts. Additional weakening is expected, and Melissa is
forecast to become a post-tropical remnant low later tonight or
early Monday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure of 1003 mb (29.62 inches) is
based on reports from a nearby NOAA drifting buoy.


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
COASTAL FLOODING:  Minor to moderate coastal flooding will occur
along some portions of the U.S. Mid-Atlantic and southeastern coast
today around times of high tide.

SURF:  Swells generated by Melissa are affecting much of the U.S.
east coast, portions of the Bahamas, Bermuda, and Atlantic Canada.
These swells will result in life-threatening surf and rip current
conditions.  Please consult products from your local weather office.
