DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 AM AST (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Oscar was located
near latitude 34.1 North, longitude 53.6 West. Oscar is moving
toward the northeast near 22 mph (35 km/h). A faster north-
northeast to northeast motion is expected during the next few days.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 75 mph (120 km/h)
with higher gusts. Oscar is expected to become an extratropical low
over the north-central Atlantic Ocean by tonight. Although gradual
weakening is expected during the next several days, Oscar is
expected to remain a powerful post-tropical cyclone over the
north-central and northeastern Atlantic Ocean into the weekend.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles (45 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 150 miles
(240 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 982 mb (29.00 inches).


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