DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1100 PM EDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Elsa was
located near latitude 32.1 North, longitude 82.3 West. Elsa is
moving toward the north-northeast near 16 mph (26 km/h). A turn
toward northeast is expected overnight, followed by a faster
northeastward motion by late Thursday.  On the forecast track, Elsa
will move over Georgia tonight, over South Carolina early on
Thursday, over North Carolina later on Thursday, pass near 
the eastern mid-Atlantic states late Thursday and move near or
over the northeastern United States on Friday.
 
Doppler radar and surface data indicate that the maximum sustained
winds remain near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher gusts. Slow weakening
is expected through tomorrow as Elsa moves over land, and some 
re-strengthening is possible on Friday while the system moves close 
to the northeastern United States.  Elsa is forecast to become a 
post-tropical cyclone late Friday.
 
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km), 
mostly southeast of the center near the coast.
 
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1006 mb (29.71 inches) 
based on nearby surface observations.
