DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 800 PM AST (0000 UTC), the center of Hurricane Fred was located
near latitude 17.4 North, longitude 25.0 West. Fred is moving toward
the northwest near 12 mph (19 km/h), and this motion is expected to
continue through tonight.  A turn toward the west-northwest is
expected on Tuesday.  On the forecast track, the center will be
moving away from the Cape Verde Islands.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 75 mph (120 km/h)
with higher gusts.  Weakening is forecast during the next couple of
days.

Hurricane force winds extend outward up to 15 miles (30 km) from the
center and tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 80 miles
(130 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 992 mb (29.29 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND:  Tropical storm or hurricane conditions will continue over
portions of the Cape Verde Islands for the next few hours.  Wind
speeds atop and on the windward sides of hills and mountains are
often up to 30 percent stronger than indicated in this advisory, and
in some elevated locations can be even greater.

STORM SURGE:  A storm surge is expected to produce coastal flooding
in areas of onshore winds in the Cape Verde Islands.  Near the
coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and dangerous waves.

RAINFALL:  Fred is expected to produce total rain accumulations of
4 to 6 inches over the Cape Verde Islands, with possible isolated
maximum amounts of 10 inches.  These rains are likely to produce
life-threatening flash flooding and mud slides.
