DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1100 AM AST (1500 UTC), the center of Hurricane Oscar was located
near latitude 36.6 North, longitude 51.6 West. Oscar is
accelerating toward the northeast near 29 mph (46 km/h), and an
even faster motion toward the northeast or north-northeast over the
north Atlantic Ocean is expected during the next couple of days.

Maximum sustained winds are near 75 mph (120 km/h) with higher
gusts. Oscar is expected to become an extratropical low over the
north-central Atlantic Ocean later today. 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 35 miles (55 km) from the
center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 275
miles (445 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
today. Please consult products from your local weather office,
as these conditions could cause life-threatening surf and rip
currents.
