DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 300 AM GMT (0300 UTC), the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone
Epsilon was located near latitude 48.6 North, longitude 38.8 West.
The post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the northeast near 46 mph
(74 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue through 
Monday night. 

Maximum sustained winds are near 70 mph (110 km/h) with higher
gusts.  Little change in strength is forecast during the next day 
or so before the post-tropical cyclone is absorbed by a large 
extratropical low pressure system on Monday night or early Tuesday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 450 miles (720 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 968 mb (28.59 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF:  Large swells generated by Epsilon will affect Bermuda, the
Bahamas, the Greater Antilles, the Leeward Islands, portions of the
east coast of the United States, and Atlantic Canada through Monday.
These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip
current conditions.  Please consult products from your local weather
office.
