DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 PM AST (2100 UTC), the center of Hurricane Oscar was located
near latitude 31.3 North, longitude 56.6 West. Oscar is moving
toward the north-northeast near 20 mph (31 km/h). A faster motion
in the same general direction is expected through Wednesday,
followed by a turn toward the northeast on Thursday.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 85 mph (140 km/h)
with higher gusts. Gradual weakening is forecast during the next

post-tropical low over the north-central Atlantic Ocean by late
Wednesday.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles
(185 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 979 mb (28.91 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

SURF: Large swells generated by Oscar will affect Bermuda through
Wednesday. Please consult products from your local weather office,
as these conditions could cause life-threatening surf and rip
currents.
