DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 PM EDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Arthur was
located near latitude 31.5 North, longitude 77.2 West. Arthur is
moving toward the north-northeast near 9 mph (15 km/h).  A turn
toward the northeast with an increase in forward speed is expected
during the next 24 to 36 hours.  A turn toward the east is forecast 
to occur on Tuesday.  On the forecast track, Arthur will remain 
well offshore of the coasts of Georgia and South Carolina tonight, 
and then move near or just east of the coast of North Carolina on 
Monday.  Arthur is forecast to turn away from the east coast of the 
United States Monday night and Tuesday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher gusts.
Some gradual strengthening is forecast during the next day or so. 
Arthur is likely to lose tropical characteristics on Tuesday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles (205 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1002 mb (29.59 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected within the Tropical
Storm Warning area on Monday.

RAINFALL: Arthur is expected to produce total rain accumulations of
1 to 3 inches over coastal North Carolina tonight and Monday,
with locally higher amounts.

SURF:  Swells generated by Arthur are affecting portions of
the southeast U.S. coast and are expected to spread northward along
the U.S. mid-Atlantic coast 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.
