DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1100 PM EDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Arthur was
located near latitude 36.4 North, longitude 72.4 West. Arthur is
moving toward the east-northeast near 15 mph (24 km/h), and this
motion is forecast to continue tonight.  A turn toward the east is
expected on Tuesday.  A slower motion toward the southeast or
south-southeast is expected to begin Tuesday night and continue
through Wednesday. On the forecast track, the center of Arthur will
continue to move out to sea away from the east coast of the United
States.

Recent satellite-derived wind data indicate that maximum sustained 
winds have increased to near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts.
Although some slight strengthening is forecast during the
next day or so, Arthur is expected to lose its tropical
characteristics on Tuesday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km)
from the center. NOAA Buoy 44014 located about 100 miles (160 km)
west of Arthur's center recently measured a sustained wind of
38 mph (61 km/h) and a gust to 47 mph (76 km/h). Also, NOAA Buoy
41001 located about 120 miles (200 km) southeast of the center
recently measured a wind gust of 43 mph (69 km/h).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 991 mb (29.27 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.
