At 500 AM AST (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Karl was

moving toward the northeast near 46 mph (74 km/h) and this general
motion is expected to continue through today.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 70 mph (110 km/h)
with higher gusts.  Some additional strengthening is forecast during
the next 24 hours, and Karl is expected to be at hurricane intensity
when it becomes a post-tropical cyclone later today.  The
post-tropical cyclone will be absorbed by a large extratropical low
tonight or early Monday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 185 miles (295 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 990 mb (29.24 inches).
