 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.
