DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
At 200 PM AST (1800 UTC), the center of Hurricane Epsilon was
located near latitude 31.5 North, longitude 61.2 West. Epsilon is
moving toward the north-northwest near 8 mph (13 km/h). This general
motion is expected today, followed by a northward motion tonight
through Friday night, and an acceleration toward the northeast over
the weekend. On the forecast track, the center of Epsilon should
make its closest approach to, but well to the east of, Bermuda later
Maximum sustained winds remain near 90 mph (150 km/h) with higher
gusts. Some fluctuations in intensity are expected during the next
couple of days, with gradual weakening forecast by early next week.
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 15 miles (30 km) from
the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 310
miles (500 km).
The estimated minimum central pressure is 965 mb (28.50 inches).
HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected intermittently on
Bermuda through this evening.
SURF: Large swells generated by Epsilon will affect Bermuda, the
Bahamas, the Greater Antilles, the Leeward Islands, the east coast
of the United States, and Atlantic Canada during the next few days.
These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip
current conditions. Please consult products from your local weather
