DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 900 AM GMT (0900 UTC), the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Sam
was located near latitude 51.0 North, longitude 39.4 West. The
post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the north near 23 mph (37
km/h), and this general motion should continue today with a further
decrease in forward speed.  A slow east-northeastward motion is 
forecast to begin by late today, and a northeastward motion is 
expected Wednesday and Wednesday night.
 
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 80 mph (130 km/h) 
with higher gusts.  Although gradual weakening is forecast during 
the next few days, Sam is expected to remain a powerful 
post-tropical cyclone over the north Atlantic today.
 
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km) from
the center and gale-force winds extend outward up to 460 miles (740 
km).
 
The estimated minimum central pressure is 970 mb (28.64 inches).

web at hurricanes.gov/graphics_at3.shtml?key_messages.
 
SURF:  Swells generated by Sam will impact the northern Leeward
