DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 500 PM EDT (2100 UTC), the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Matthew was located near latitude 35.4 North, longitude 72.0 West. The post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the east-northeast near 15 mph (24 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue tonight.

Maximum sustained winds are near 75 mph (120 km/h) with higher gusts. Some weakening is forecast tonight, and the low is expected to be absorbed within a frontal boundary on Monday.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles (150 km), primarily to the southwest and west of the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 240 miles (390 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure based on data from a NASA Global Hawk aircraft is 988 mb (29.18 inches).



HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND: Wind gusts to tropical storm force will continue over portions of the Outer Banks tonight.

STORM SURGE: Dangerously high water levels over portions of the Outer Banks will gradually subside overnight and early Monday. Consult products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast office for additional information.

RAINFALL: Life-threatening flooding will continue over portions of eastern North Carolina that have received record rains from Matthew. Consult products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast office for additional information and warnings.

SURF: Swells generated by Matthew will continue to affect much of the southeastern and Mid-Atlantic coasts of the United States during the next couple of days. These swells will likely cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please consult products from your local weather office.
