Tropical Update

The post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the north-northeast near 35 mph (56 km/h), and a motion toward the northeast with some decrease in forward speed is expected during the next two to three days. Maximum sustained winds are near 75 mph (120 km/h) with higher gusts. Although gradual weakening is forecast 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.
