DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 200 AM EDT (0600 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Arthur was
located near latitude 29.6 North, longitude 77.7 West.  Arthur is
moving toward the north-northeast near 13 mph (20 km/h), and this 
general motion is expected to continue today.  A faster 
northeastward motion is expected on Monday.  On the forecast track,
Arthur will remain well offshore the east coast of Florida, Georgia,
and South Carolina today, and then move near or east of the coast of
North Carolina on Monday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher
gusts.  Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1006 mb (29.71 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch
area on Monday.

RAINFALL: Arthur is expected to produce additional rain
accumulations of 1 to 2 inches over the central and northwest
Bahamas, through this morning.  Arthur is also expected to produce 
total rain accumulations of 1 to 2 inches over coastal North 
Carolina tonight and Monday.

SURF:  Swells generated by Arthur 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.
