DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 500 AM AST (0900 UTC), the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Nicole
was located near latitude 47.1 North, longitude 39.5 West. The
post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the north-northeast near 31
mph (50 km/h) and this motion is expected to continue through
Wednesday night.

Maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher
gusts.  Little change in strength is forecast before the
post-tropical cyclone is absorbed by another low pressure area
Wednesday night or Thursday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 345 miles (555 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 969 mb (28.62 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF:  Large swells associated with Nicole will affect the United
States east coast, the coast of Atlantic Canada, Bermuda, the
Bahamas, the Greater Antilles, the Leeward Islands, and the Azores
islands for the next few days, creating dangerous surf conditions
and rip currents.  These swells are also likely to reach Europe and
the northwest coast of Africa in a day or two.  Please refer to
products being issued by your local weather office for more
information.
