DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1100 PM AST (0300 UTC), the center of Hurricane Epsilon was 
located near latitude 41.3 North, longitude 56.1 West. Epsilon is 
accelerating toward the northeast near 24 mph (39 km/h). Continued 
acceleration in that direction is expected for the next day or two.

Maximum sustained winds are near 75 mph (120 km/h) with higher 
gusts.  Gradual weakening is possible through the weekend, but 
Epsilon is expected to remain a large and powerful system even after 
it becomes post-tropical on Sunday.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 380 miles
(610 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 960 mb (28.35 inches).


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